Programs & Services


The Kirkpatrick House program focuses on community re-integration, employment and/or education, and community treatment. Residents are expected to maintain employment and/or follow an academic program or participate in a treatment plan. Supports for residents include case-management planning, crisis, motivational and supportive counselling; literacy and academic upgrading; pre-employment and employment supports, and daily living and life skills programming, including financial guidance and maintaining pro-social attitudes and behaviour change.

Case Management:

Successful re-integration of offenders into the Ottawa community is the goal of the residence. Ongoing assessment and case planning provides the tools for case managers to help residents reach their personal and professional goals, provide current reports on each participant, work collaboratively with the Ottawa Parole Office, the Ottawa Police Service, and other community service providers.
