Motivated by faith in Jesus, Regina Youth For Christ’s mandate is to serve youth, regardless of their religion, race, ethnicity, or gender, as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people.
Honouring the culture of the youth we serve is important to creating a trusting environment where youth feel safe and loved. We recognize that a significant number of the youth that we are privileged to serve are First Nations and therefore, we are intentional in creating space for cultural expression in our housing program.
Our housing programs use a holistic and individualized approach in serving our youth while providing them with safety, security, and stability. Through that, we provide individualized opportunities to gain life skills, build relationships and work on their family involvement. Through these shared experiences our hope is that they see their true potential!
Jeremiah House is a peer-model home, based in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. This is a five-bed home that houses youth of all genders within the ages of 16-18 years old, with the potential of up to 21 years old. The home focuses on the youth’s transition to adulthood while providing support and security to each youth.
The focus on the youth’s transition through their later teenage years is based on each youth’s individualized case plan and their current needs anywhere from emotional to cultural to educational and more. The home encourages youth to gain independence for their future whether that be through learning to cook, applying for jobs, finishing their education, or other life skills that may be an asset to their future. Jeremiah House strives to assist the youth in our program to be confident and successful when they transition out wherever the future takes them.
