Congratulatory Message: Chrysalis House

Mr. Coon: I want to invite all the members of this House to join me in congratulating Youth in Transition on its 25th anniversary. For 25 years, it has provided safe and nurturing shelter for teenage girls and, now, teenage boys between the ages of 16 and 19 at Fredericton’s Chrysalis House. For 25 years, Chrysalis House, a nonprofit organization, has been providing youth who cannot be at home or do not have a home with a safe place to live while helping them to address their personal issues and supporting them in developing essential life skills.

I know that the members will join me in welcoming the efforts of Youth in Transition and other youth shelters from around the province, such as the Miramichi Youth House and Saint John’s Safe Harbour, to expand their capacity to accommodate the growing waiting list of young people in need of safe shelter and support. Thank you.
