Chimo's SOLO with Supports Transition Home provides shared living for youth and young adults preparing for supported independent living in their adulthood. Like their peers in the Mentor Support Homes, these youth also require the extra supports to learn life skills and living skills. Appropriate skills are acquired in the holistic ambience of Chimo 5 with the support of peers and Mentors who work in shifts. Often youth in this program will be transferring on to the adult support system(s) i.e. Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH, Disability Services (PDD)) and/or Adult Mental Health (AHS Programs and Services). The program provides the resources and hands-on guidance to youth (and families) during this transition.

Services include:

  • 24/7 care and support in the Transition Home with Mentors who work in shifts
  • Assigned Coordinator
  • Supervision and training in the areas Social Relationship Skills, Self Development, Personal Wellness–Health, Nutrition, First Aid/Safety, Community Resources and Community Building (Supports upon entering adulthood), Finances, Time Management and Employment, Support to reconnect and rebuild families ties using the Support Circle process.

Youth are expected to attend a day-program throughout the year that is appropriate to their needs, such as school, work or an alternative option. They also must meet with their Coordinator for a minimum of 5 hours each week for task-oriented and goal-directed skill development.
