Safe Harbour provides emergency and transitional housing to homeless and at-risk youth ages 16-24 years.  Safe Harbour is a direct response to the crisis in youth homelessness in southern New Brunswick.  In 2012, 67 youth accessed an adult emergency shelter in Saint John; our community’s experts and key informants – youth workers and educators – estimate that more than 100 youth need transitional housing. 

Safe Harbour ensures that youths’ basic needs are met and is an integral part of the youth housing continuum.  It also supports youth in accessing the wide range of services available to them in our community.

Safe Harbour is a non-profit community based program in Saint John, New Brunswick that provides emergency and transitional housing to youth in our community.  In collaboration with the Teen Resource Center (TRC), Safe Harbour aims to meet the needs of young people from 16 to 24 years of age by providing supports and services ranging from the basic needs of food and shelter, to opportunities for personal growth.  For some youth, Safe Harbour will be the first point of entry into a long-term, service-delivery model to support them through a difficult time in their lives.
