WORKING TOGETHER FOR SAFE COMMUNITIES
The British Columbia-Yukon Halfway House Association (BCYHHA) was founded to provide a voice for community-based service facilities and agencies who work together to ensure the safe and effective reintegration and rehabilitation of federal offenders into our communities.
The BCYHHA network promotes the exchange of knowledge and resources amongst its partners and affiliates in order to provide effective and evidence-based programs and treatment plans. BCYHHA reviews, creates and maintains effective standards, policies and legislation for residential services throughout British Columbia and the Yukon Territory.
LIFE SKILLS AND TRAINING
Our community-based facilities equip offenders with the life skills and knowledge they require to become law-abiding and productive members of the community. Our members work to provide effective training and vocational programs. BCYHHA members operate supportive and culturally-sensitive residences and programs that consider the unique needs of diverse groups of offenders.
A NETWORK OF PARTNERSHIPS AND COMMUNITIES
The members of BCYHHA work together with various agencies and services to promote strong communities partnerships. As an organization, BCYHHA operates as a network designed to enhance public safety through effective commmunications and the free exchange of ideas, knowledge and skills.
The members of BCYHHA work with communities to ensure the gradual and safe reintegration of offenders. Community-based residential facilities provide an important bridge between institutional care and the community by supporting the supervised rehabilitation of offenders combined with the appropriate treatment programs.
