Willows

Residential program for youth 13-18 years of age

Willows

Willows is a residential program for youth 13-18 years of age referred by Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) or Fraser Valley Aboriginal Children and Family Services Society (FVACFSS). 

Willows provides a stabilization and reunification program for youth within four to six months. Our purpose is to provide crisis stabilization and behavioural interventions, skills and tools for family and youth.

Our goal is to support the youth and family with a successful transition back to their original placement or family, with improved connections to community-based and intervention supports. We also work with youth to develop stability and basic life skills to help prepare them for independent living.

 

Who We Help

  • Youth in care who have been referred by MCFD or FVACFSS resource workers
  • Self-referrals or referrals by organizations other than MCFD or FVACFSS are not eligible 

“This is the safest and most stable I have felt in the past year.”
