How it works
The program can be spread out over a period of 3 to 18 months to allow each participant to regain, at their own pace, the autonomy necessary to return to the community permanently.
The approach is personalized. Each participant sets the skills they must acquire and the issues they must solve to regain control of their life: addictions, employability, mental health, physical health, legal proceedings, education, debt, etc.
An intervention team supports them in their efforts by directing them to partners whose services are adapted to the needs and reality of the participants, in various spheres of activity.
During their stay, participants have to respect curfews as well as a charter of rights and responsibilities. The costs related to this program are set according to income.
The accommodation offered for social reintegration programs is one of transition and support in the procedings. The ultimate goal for each participant must remain that of relocating back to the community, with or without psychosocial support.
Because every street should have an exit…
