Lu'ma Native Housing Society

Aboriginal Youth Mentorship & Housing program

Launched in 2014, we currently support, mentor, engage and house 13 Aboriginal youth aged 16-24 to help in their successful transition from fostercare to adulthood. The program is 12-18 mths in length. Our Youth will be engaged to find permanent affordable housing as they graduate. Core staff are 2 Youth Mentors and a Project Manager supported by staff at Lu'ma. We have 8 Community Partnerships we will continue to develop to provide opportunities for our Youth and participate on our Community Partnership Board. We are actively building an Aboriginal Youth Advocacy Board to participate with the Community to advocate for positive change in public policy affecting young people transitioning out of government care. Core Program Structure: - Seminars & Workshops are provided weekly by our Mentors and Community Partners - Field trips with Community Partners, get acquainted and engaged with people, places & services - Youth are engaged in one-on-one Mentorship to overcome financial, educational, developmental, and health & wellness barriers or challenges.
