A new group home has opened up in the City’s north end and will house up to six struggling youth.
The home is run by 4 Directions Child and Family Services and will provide a safe place for kids ages 12-15.
Trudy Shingoose, Executive Director of 4 Child and Family Services says the home provides opportunities the kids wouldn’t normally receive.
“We’re bonding them with the community, they’re going to be involved in culture, recreation, all sorts of activities, mental health, anything they need.”
The home received $200,000 in upgrades and almost $900,000 in annual operation funds from the government of Saskatchewan.
