Communitas provides full-time home living for children and youth requiring complex care. These are children whose needs may include complex medical conditions, mental health concerns and significant behavioural challenges. Living in a home environment with staff who provide 24/7 specialized care helps these children and youth live rich and full lives.
Often the young people in our care come from challenging circumstances. Some have been abandoned at a young age and been through the foster care system. Most have experienced trauma, and many live with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum disorder. At Communitas, we believe that a full life is overflowing with choice, experience, and relationships. We are intentional about creating home settings where people are treated with love, respect and dignity. Children and youth in our care are given a safe, secure and stable environment. There are opportunities for social interaction, communication and recreational skills with peers. Services are tailored to the needs of each child or youth and focused on positive outcomes.
