Dominion House provides support to criminalized men whose primary issues are related to employment, housing and substance abuse support. A case management approached is utilized to deliver service. A case plan, typically focusing on issues of addiction, anger management, negative/criminal thinking and relapse prevention, is tailored to the individual's needs. This plan dovetails with the treatment plan of the referring agency.

Dominion House also provides service to individuals with mental disabilities (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, brain damage due to drugs, solvents or trauma and developmental problems). Again, in conjunction with the referring agency, staff develop an individual treatment plan focusing on life skills, addiction issues, antisocial attitudes/associates and relapse prevention. Preparation for independent or semi-independent living is normally a goal for these cases.

Residential house staff help residents to problem solve day to day issues, teach basic life skills through discussion and direct example and support residents in their efforts to maintain a positive lifestyle. Meal preparation and supervision of resident's chores are also staff functions. In terms of formal supervision, residential house staff monitor the activities of residents to ensure compliance with conditions of Parole and Probation. Significant events and serious breaches of conditions are immediately reported to the appropriate authorities.

The Outreach Worker maintains the case plan in conjunction with the referring agency and works "one on one" with residents. They also maintain ongoing liaison with a variety of community resources and will assist residents to gain access to community programs and/or social services. Each resident's case is reviewed weekly by the Outreach Worker, the House Manager and the Executive Director. Services include:

- Case Management Support
- Outreach Services
- Employment Search
- Housing Referrals
- Community Self Help Networking
- Spiritual Development
