Our Community-Based Residential Facilities (CRFs) operate under contract with the Correctional Service of Canada. Elliott House, Guy Richmond Place, Hobden House, and Tims Manor provide safe, stable, and welcoming housing and wraparound supports to persons on day parole or conditional release with residence conditions from federal correctional institutions. All residents are subject to both general and specific conditions of release, and community safety is ensured through 24-hour staff who provide structure, monitoring, and support.
Our staff provide residents with continuous support and advocacy as they navigate potential obstacles in their reintegration, and assist them to establish positive community connections. Our CRFs provide food, shelter, and access to amenities, and connect residents to supports related to every aspect of their reintegration efforts such as addictions, mental health, employment, education goals, and information on obtaining housing, personal identification, medical coverage, banking services, and recreational opportunities.
With the support and assistance of JHS staff, practicum students, and volunteers, CRF residents can meet their own needs and learn greater independence through the development of personal plans which create a foundation for change.
