We currently have
TWO BED AVAILABLE: Spirit 5 House
All male home. Suitable for boys age 14-19 years: This home has mostly male staff who keep the boys busy by taking them to the gym, playing basketball, road hockey etc and teaching them about culture, how to cook, budget, use public transportation etc. The boys are supported with school and/or work.
FOUR BED AVAILABLE: Cardinal Cottage House
A great opportunity to keep a sibling group together: This is a very nurturing home that emphasizes youth stability, help with their education as well as teaching life skills and culture. Along with the usual rec. activities, they often volunteer at various locations around Edmonton.
We accept referrals through delegated First Nations Agencies and Child and Family Services offices. If a group of siblings need care, our homes/beds can be reconfigured to accommodate keeping them together.
We create a welcoming, safe and friendly environment in all our homes. The homes are well-maintained, single family 5 bedroom houses in established neighborhoods, close to schools, playgrounds and with easy access to transportation.
Spirit of Our Youth currently has 6 homes in the Edmonton area.
