Agency: John Howard Society of York Region
John Howard Society of York Region works for the people affected by the justice system.
Through evidence-based programs focused on prevention, intervention and re-integration, we build better futures for individuals and safer communities for all. We help youth develop the critical life skills that will let them achieve their full potential and avoid future justice involvement. We support families with counselling and resources to help them navigate the challenges of criminal justice. For those leaving incarceration, we provide housing and training to help them find a job, reintegrate into their community and reduce their risk of re-offense.
