WORKING TOGETHER FOR SAFER COMMUNITIES
The Atlantic Halfway House Association (AHHA) is a non-profit organization comprised of residential service facilities, government agencies, and other organizations who work together to ensure the safe and effective reintegration of federal offenders within communities in the Atlantic provinces.
A NETWORK OF COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS
AHHA members work to enhance public safety by promoting strong community partnerships as well as by focusing on improved integration and communications with criminal justice services throughout Canada. Please see our FAQ for more information on the ways in which our facilities contribute to the safety of our communities.
Community-based residential facilities provide an important bridge between institutional care and the community by supporting gradual, supervised reintegration for offenders combined with the appropriate treatment programs.
EVIDENCE-BASED TREATMENT PLANS AND PROGRAMS
The AHHA network promotes the effective exchange of knowledge and resources amongst its partners and affiliates, who work together to provide evidence-based program and treatment plans. As an organization, AHHA reviews, creates, and maintains effective standards, policies and legislation for residential services throughout the Atlantic provinces.
SKILLS FOR THE FUTURE
Our facilities equip offenders with the life skills and knowledge they require to become productive and law-abiding members of the community. AHHA members work to provide effective programs that consider the unique challenges faced by minority groups and women leaving institutional care.
