Huron House is a safe, structured, live-in treatment environment for adolescent boys with complex needs.

We have supported over 1,500 boys and their families since 1970.

We are licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services and an accredited live-in children’s mental health centre, the only one in Lambton County, though our residents can come from other areas of Ontario. For more than 50 years, our caring professionals have worked together to develop and implement programs to enable our residents to make positive changes in their lives.

How do we do this? Through highly individualized plans of care for each resident and collaborating closely with families and placing agencies to ensure that our approach to care for each resident is as consistent and effective as possible.

All staff involved in program delivery have post-secondary education (a university degree or a diploma as a Child and Youth Worker) and keep up to date on relevant training to ensure program delivery is consistent with best practices supporting youth mental health.

How do boys arrive at Huron House? By being referred in one of two ways:

Our operations are guided by a volunteer Board of Directors and supported by the Huron House Boys’ Home Foundation. The Foundation is a separate body with its own volunteer Board of Directors, responsible for maintaining the long-term financial viability of Huron House. The funding we receive from the provincial government only covers part of our expenses so we fundraise to cover the remainder to ensure we can continue to offer our top-quality programming to all youth who need it.
