What is Safe Harbour House?
Located in Saint John, New Brunswick, Safe Harbour House provides transitional programming support for homeless youth. The ultimate goal of the house is to provide residents with a supportive environment and offer them programming to help boost self-efficacy and equip them for independent living.
To accomplish this goal, we rely on an client-centered approach in which residents are guided to develop a road map for their time with us. Such plans generally include components related to career guidance, life skills development, building supportive relationships, and healthy living.
The length of each resident’s stay at Safe Harbour House can vary. We operate under a philosophy that values impact over strict time constraints. The duration of each resident’s stay is based on their needs, their level of readiness to transition to independent living, and their financial stability.
