HomeBridge Youth Society was incorporated in 1977 and known as The Association for the Development of Children's Residential Facilities (ADCRF) for 28 years. This charitable, non-profit organization (Charitable Registration #106728918RR0001) was established by front line social workers who identified a need for residential care in the child welfare system. The organization grew to six residential, youth caring facilities throughout the Halifax Regional Municipality and a school program. Today, 40 high risk youth between the ages of 12 and 18 years old can be served in community settings at one time. Approximately 120 young people reside in our facilities annually. All the young people are in the temporary or permanent care of the Minister of Community Services.

In June 2005, a new name was welcomed to further describe the work of the organization and future planned directions. HomeBridge Youth Society will continue the work of the ADCRF with the ongoing commitments of the Nova Scotia Departments of Community Services, Education and Transportation and Public Works, and St. Paul's Home Board. An extended vision of corporate, charitable foundations and other public support is furthering our ability to offer progressive therapeutic program opportunities for young people.
