Child Welfare Residential Services is where we started. In 1971, we opened the doors of our first program, and namesake, on Kennedy Road in Scarborough.

Kennedy Road

The Kennedy Road program is a co-ed home that houses up to nine youth between the ages of 12 and 18 who are in care.

At Kennedy Road, staff offer incentive programs for younger clients, assisting them to achieve their daily routines, tasks, and development of new skills. For the older clients this environment offers personal goal planning and skill development in preparation for independent living.

Within the Kennedy Road program is the Loft Program for young women. The Kennedy House Loft Program is designed to provide gender-specific support and guidance necessary to clients as they transition out of the Child Welfare System to live independently.

Kingston Road

The Kingston Road program is a program for female youth in care. With a maximum of seven residents, this is a specialized program for young women who require intensive and supportive intervention in order to experience success.

*NOTE: this program is currently undergoing physical renovations and program review and is not accepting clients.

Galloway Road

The Galloway Road program provides residential placement for youth between the ages of 12 and 17 (male and female) who have been diagnosed as having an intellectual disability, are identified as being on the autism spectrum, or identify as having other complex needs.

This program was designed to provide a safe and secure home for up to five clients with complex needs who require a medium to higher level of staffing support.
