Residential Care and Healing for the Youth
We are committed to fostering an environment where youth are treated with respect, unconditional positive regard, genuineness, and empathetic understanding.
ABOUT OUR CARE FACILITY
Offering 24/7 residential care, we build meaningful relationships with youth so youth can fully participate in their care planning and healing. We employ a strength-based approach to help youth develop the skills they need to be life-ready when they leave our care.
Life Ready inspires to provide trauma-informed, culturally competent, collaborative, and equitable care to every youth and family by providing a safe space to grow filled with respect, unconditional positive regard, genuineness, and empathetic understanding.
Life Ready holds a vision of healing where youth from all walks of life are treated with respect, fully participate in their own wellness, and positively contribute to their community. We believe all youth should have the chance to overcome the day-to-day difficulties they face, while also answering the more profound questions they have about life, meaning, and purpose.
We place every individual at the center of their care by providing them with a safe place to establish voice and choice throughout their journey of healing and prospering.
We work from a trauma-informed lens when helping people develop a deep understanding of the complex and multidimensional effects of trauma on one’s physical, neuro-biological, and social development.
We aim to continuously increase our intercultural and intra-cultural knowledge as we recognize the influence of culture on one’s behaviour, values, and beliefs.
We provide equitable and ethical care to every individual, especially those who experience discrimination, prejudice, and are disproportionately represented in the mental health and criminal justice systems.
We follow the principles of best practice with integrity and professionalism when working with youth and their families. We hold our staff to the highest standards and have mechanisms in place to ensure the rights of all the youth in are care are upheld.
