The society purchased the house and property on Beaver Creek Road (9 acres across from Co-op) in 2004. The Mortgage was provided by CMHC, which is forgivable at 1/15 per year as long as house is used to assist women and/or children in need. The overall vision of the Safehouse was formed to create a safe, nurturing home for youth.
The Safehouse is one of the few Aboriginal operated group homes for youth in the province.
The Youth Resource Home began Youth and Family Day Programs in October 2006 and the Society began providing residential care for up to five youth as of June 2007. The youth can be placed in the home by Usma, the Ministry of Child and Family Development, or other authorities.
The Society currently employs 8 F/T and P/T staff and allows for the operation of Incredible Edibles on the property which sells organic produce to the public.
The board is comprised of the following HFN members:
The Youth Resource home also has two Managers: Erma Robinson and Deb Chartrand.
