The Treasure House model is based around three key principles, which crate a framework that enables our residents to enjoy a fulfilling life experience:
  1. Safety and Well Being: Treasure House residents enjoy reduced risks to their physical and social and emotional well-being, which supports increase preventative care and improves overall health outcomes
  2. Independence: Treasure House residents are provided with an ideal environment to support them as they achieve and maintain their goals for independent living.
  3. Community: Residents contribute both to the Treasure House community and the broader community around them through fellowship, mentoring, volunteering, employment and as consumers and patrons.

Our Approach

Our approach is to center on the individual, not a program or process that isn’t tailored to a young adult’s specific goals. We focus on our residents’ strengths, talents and abilities to identify the best ways to support their growth and achieve their potential. We work to achieve a balance between providing a supportive environment and reducing the amount of restrictions that could contain their growth and development.

Our resident experience includes:

  • Community-based (verses program- or facility-based) housing and services
  • Knowledge and skill development
  • Connections and mentorship
  • Meaningful educational, vocational and social opportunities
    and experiences
  • Community awareness and advocacy
