About Us

Arbour House is an eight-bed licensed children’s residence located in beautiful North Bay. Our program ensures children remain in the north by offering short-term crisis and stabilization placements for youth between the ages of 12 and 18. We specialized in trauma informed and individualized programming to suit the needs of  children and youth.

Our Model

Our Service Model represents a truly trauma-informed approach to service integration and delivery with the goal of placements being temporary (60 days).

We Are Recruiting!
