Alternate Care (Individualized Living Arrangements)

This is a licensed foster placement program whereby child and youth care workers support a young person on a rotational staffing model in a home that is specifically set up and designed to meet the young person’s presenting and ongoing needs. Child and youth care workers and other in-house support staff (i.e., clinicians, therapists, psychologist, autism support specialists, counsellors, and teachers) offer a variety of training and programming tailored to the needs of the young person.  While ILAs are primarily set up for a particular young person, there are times when we may have two unrelated young persons residing together if such is requested by the placing government agency and assessed to be a good match by Key Assets. Similarly, a large sibling group that cannot be accommodated in family-based care may be placed in an ILA.
