Harold McNeill House is operated by Murray McKinnon Foundation, a non-profit organization, licensed and funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services. This home provides services to young men in Durham Region.
The house is a 5 bed supportive reintegration residence which provides housing for young men between the ages of 16-20 years of age, who are at risk of involvement with justice system or are involved with the justice system and are experiencing homelessness or living in unsafe or unsustainable housing.
Our goal is to assist the young men in acquiring appropriate housing that will meet their needs. The young men will be mentored as they gain stability, develop positive relationships and work on their individualized goal plan.
Our focus is a holistic case management approach supporting the young men with education, employment training and/or employment, life skills, physical and mental wellness, community and cultural engagement, family reconnection (where appropriate), financial literacy, legal issues, positive tenancy and meaningful activities. This service is client driven empowering young men's involvement in planning and decision making.
Harold McNeill House employs a team of well trained and dedicated workers who understand the importance of being client-focused, acting in an advocacy role, and have the ability to engage and develop strength based relationships with young men. Support will be provided on a 24/7 basis.
This program will meet the needs of young men who are currently vulnerable and living in the chaos of a transient lifestyle or being homeless. We believe that opportunities for these young men become endless when they are provided with safe and sustainable housing.
