The Sky Program is a community based program that provides an alternative to custody for youth by accessing supportive, nurturing Caregivers in the community along with day programming Monday to Friday. It is because of our Caregivers that we are able to continue our Sky Program and work with adjudicated youth towards a bright future.

We are always seeking to contract with caring individuals or couples to provide home placements for adjudicated youth (13-19 years old) for a short term of three to six months.

The Basics:

Individual homes in the community provide youth with a supervised environment during non-program hours

Care homes are supported by a one to one worker and a 24/7 pager

Care homes can be individuals or couples, owners or renters

Interested in becoming a Caregiver?

You can pick up applications at the Elizabeth Fry Society Office at 827 Seymour Street, Monday through Thursday between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm (closed between 12:00 and 1:00 pm). Return completed applications attention: Hiring Committee.
