Bail & Respite

Our Bail & Respite program is for youth aged 13-18 who are on a conditional court order, including a Bail or Sentencing Order.

Why we do it...

Our aim is to help youth begin to develop the attitudes, skills and relationships necessary for a future that doesn’t include involvement in the court system.

How we work...

Transition plans are developed in accordance with each youth’s individual strengths, needs and circumstances. Our services are consistent with the requirements of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, and support youth justice program principles including safety, rehabilitation and minimizing the use of custody.

Where we do it...

This program is available in Vancouver, Richmond and on the North Shore.

What we do…

We provide each youth with a one-to-one worker and a safe, nurturing family home. Youth are with us for 30 days during which time they are supported to identify and transition to other appropriate residential placements.
