Youth Services

We're here to help

Hollyburn Family Services Society provides lifelong solutions for youth through emergency services, transitional housing, employment and work experience, and life and social skill development. We offer a wide range of services that support youth, who are experiencing barriers, to successfully transition to adulthood. From our Youth Safe House to programs like Life Success, Wired 4 Success and Hockey Heroes, we strive to make a difference in the lives of all the youth that walk through our doors.


Youth Safe House

North Shore Youth Safe House (NSYSH) provides short-term emergency housing and support services for youth 13 to 18 years old who are homeless, or live in unsafe and dangerous situations. Staffed 24 hours a day, the NSYSH provides nutritious meals, a clean room and bed, showers, and laundry facilities. The services are designed to return teens to a stabilized family home or alternate living environment.

Life Success

Life Success Program provides transitional housing and support to help homeless young adults, ages 18 to 24, acquire the skills needed to live independently. Key areas of focus include employment, education, interpersonal relationships, and assistance to secure permanent housing.


Wired 4 Success

Wired 4 Success is a North Shore youth employment program designed specifically for youth, 15 to 30 years of age, with barriers to employment. The 17 week program, funded by Service Canada, offers a combination of classroom instruction and work experience. Youth are paid for the length of the program based on minimum wage and a 30 hour work week.


Hockey Heroes

Hollyburn Hockey Heroes is a program designed to keep youth engaged in school by providing a weekly opportunity to play hockey. The program is offered to youth aged 14 to 18, who are otherwise unable to play hockey because of financial or social barriers.

Youth Leaving Care

Youth Leaving Care is a program that offers a range of services for youth transitioning out of government care. We provide the emotional, social and developmental supports to assist youth in aging out of care to "age into the community" as functional, independent adults.
