Youth Transitional Housing
The John Howard Society of North Island offers a variety of supportive housing options for youth. Youth are referred by the Ministry of Children and Family Development or an Independent Living Counselor.
Barnett House is a six-plex apartment building owned and managed by JHSNI in Campbell River. The facility provides 5 units of supported, transitional housing for youth ages 16 – 19 who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, and one office unit for the full time Supported Independent Living Coordinator. Youth living in the building participate in developing a service plan, determining the skills they need to acquire in order to live independently.
