Youth Transitional Housing (includes Barnett House)
JHSNI offers a variety of supportive housing options for youth. Youth are referred by the Ministry of Children and Family Development or an Independent Living Counsellor.
Barnett House is a six-plex apartment building owned and managed by JHSNI. The facility provides five units of supported, transitional housing for youth ages 16-19 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and one office unit for the full time Supported Independent Living Coordinator. Youth living in the building participate in developing a service plan, determining the skills they need to acquire in order to live independently.
Office Location: Campbell River - 10th Avenue
2014 - 2015 Outcomes
10 youth who were in need of transitional housing stayed at Barnett House this past year. One resident shared, "Barnett House was a great stepping stone for me. It helped me prepare myself for independent living by teaching me skills involved in living by myself. It was great having the Supported Independent Living Coordinator there to help me."
