Directions Safehouse Navigators

Youth-in-care, making up 40% of the homeless youth in Vancouver are a vulnerable population teetering between homelessness and stability. Under current BC legislation, there are few continuing supports available to assist youth when they turn 19 to safely transition to independence. Filling this gap will be the Navigator program, designed to support youth who have accessed our Safehouse and are transitioning to stability in adulthood. Safehouse is a voluntary residential program for at risk youth age 16 to 18 years, who need a safe place to stay for a short & critical time. About 50% of youth who access Safehouse are 18 yrs. The Navigator program will place a person in the lives of each youth whose guidance & support, similar to that of a parent, will help them achieve key transitional milestones such as housing, employment, education & life skills. This voluntary, youth centred service will be offered to all youth 18 years old and remain until one year after their 19th birthday or until the youth feels stable and self discharges.
