Establishing deep roots in the lives for which we care

​​​​​Our Sprouts Program will start again in April 2017.

This is our life skills program. Like a new sprout that is developing off the main stem, this program was created to establish healthy living and life skills. All Youth are welcome. This program will take place bi-weekly. Programming will focus on learning, and further developing a variety of life skills such as cooking, budgeting, applying for a job, transportation, locating resources, banking, shopping, laundry, hygiene and appropriate social and community interactions. All participants will take part in the Daniels Institute life skills assessment. This will provide objectives and goals to tailor the Sprouts programming to individual and group needs.

Sprouts is also offering our 1:1 CYC program to community based applicants.  This program was developed to assist and support all ages of children and youth in the community setting and home base setting.  The support takes place on an individual case by case basis on what works for the family and child/youth.  Programming will focus on life, social skills, counselling and communication following the child and youth counsellors model of care.  If you or your family are interested in this program please fill out an application form or contact the main office.  

All internal members of The Sheltering Tree who are 10+ are able to take part in this program as it is included in the per diem services offered.  All external applicants 10+ are welcome for the applicable fees associated with the program.
