Youth Transitional Housing
Barnett House is a six-plex apartment building owned and managed by The John Howard Society of North Island in Campbell River. There are five units for youth ages 16 – 19, and an office for the program coordinator. Youth in the program have been homeless, at risk of homelessness, or are transitioning from MCFD care to living on their own. The youth collaborate with the program coordinator to develop goals and learn how to live independently.
