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 youth learn the skills to live independently such as grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, and in general to be good tenants and neighbours.
Youth 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.

To Access Autumn House
- Referrals are made through MCFD and Xyolhemeylh only.
