In general:

  • HomeBridge Youth Society services youth, male and female, between 12 and 18 years of age.
  • Facilities are community based and located in residential neighbourhoods.
  • HomeBridge Youth Society’s priority is to service the Halifax Regional Municipality, however, youth from across Nova Scotia utilize our service when available.
  • Youth must be in the care of a Child Welfare Agency to be admitted to any HomeBridge Youth Society facility.
  • Each facility follows and enforces a “No Smoking” policy.
  • Each facility offers structured and unstructured life skills programming.
  • All youth are expected to attend a school program whenever possible.

Facility mandates are followed closely, while striving to serve the needs of the youth presented to the Central Region as needing residential care.
