Adolescent Group Home

SIGN operates a co-ed group home licensed for five adolescents between 12 and 15 years of age. The home provides a residential group care program to assist the child to understand and resolve personal and/or family issues, to prepare the child to return successfully to the care of his/her parent(s), guardian(s), or to provide ongoing care, support and direction leading to independent living as provided under the Family Service Act.


Youth are referred to the SIGN Group Home through the Ministry of Social Services.


Youth may be involved in various counseling services outside the Group Home.


Youth are required to attend school within the community or be involved in supervised work experience.
