Youth aging out of care from Child and Family Services (CFS) have important adult decisions to make about where to live, how to get an education or job, and how to build healthy relationships. Building Futures supports young adults transition to adulthood.
Building Futures works with youth 16–25 years old, presently or formally in care of Child and Family Services (CFS) in Manitoba.
CMHA’s role in Building Futures
Youth Service Navigation is CMHA’s work with youth to navigate adult support systems and decision-making. We can support youth to get ready to find and budget for housing, employment or education, or support.
Building Futures Counselling is CMHA’s no-cost counselling to support youth with living, relationship or other issues important to them.
