The number and proportion of young Canadians without adequate and secure housing has increased during the last two decades. Despite overall gains which have improved the lives of youth, youth between the ages of 16 and 19 who lack family support remains a group at risk of developing significant problems in their physical and mental health. Additionally, they are at risk of becoming homeless.

Youth In Transition addresses the needs of at-risk or homeless youth by offering supportive living arrangement in conjunction with a program aimed at increasing their self-esteem and independent living skills. Our residence, Chrysalis House, is a place where personal safety and accessibility to employment, education, and health care are met within a nurturing family-like setting. By modelling a stable home setting where each individual is treated with dignity and respect, Youth In Transition is attempting to reach some of New Brunswick's lost youth.

“Chrysalis House to me is home.  The safe and structured environment has helped me to mature into someone who can function better in society.  I’ve built better relationships with friends and family.  I’ve seen many different girls come and go and have learned that even though we’re all different, we need one thing in common; a safe place where we can live and prosper into who and what we are meant to be.  This house provides all of us with the support we need.”

“The staff makes such a great difference in young ladies’ lives.  I actually lived at Chrysalis House back in summer/early fall of 2002.  My life has changed so much since then in the greatest of

ways and I know just how important this place is in our community.  I am forever grateful for the house and

the staff and girls I met while at Chrysalis House.  It was life-changing.”
