Autumn HouseSupported independent living program for youth 16 to 18 years old
Autumn House is a supported, independent-living program for youth, 16 to 18 years old. Youth live in their own furnished apartments and have daily access to staff support.
At Autumn House, young people learn skills to live independently, such as grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, and, in general, to be good tenants and neighbours.
Young people are also supported in their personal development, and in their pursuit of education and employment. Young parents are welcome in the program along with their children.
Who We Help
- Youth 16-18 years old, who reside in Abbotsford and are either in care of MCFD, Xyolhemeylh, or on a Youth Agreement.
To Access Autumn House
- Referrals are made through MCFD and Xyolhemeylh only.
- The MCFD team leader collects the referrals, and a committee of social workers from both agencies, as well as Archway staff, meet and prioritize for admission to the program.
