Housing DOMAIN

Chapter 6 of the Teen Transition Planning Guide contains several “Key Domains”; these are different areas of a teen’s and family’s life that will likely need to be explored at some point in a family’s journey.

Here, our “Domain” pages list ALL of the resources on this website that are related to each specific domain.  This information is a duplicate of the SAME information listed on other pages, such as on the Local Community page, or the “Province and National” pages, etc.  It is duplicated here for convenience of being able to see all information sorted by domain.

To us “Housing” means the living arrangements and caregiver arrangements for the youth with special needs. This may include:

  • independent living,
  • supported living,
  • group homes, or
  • cooperative housing.
