Tell Me More


Country Haven provides long-term residential care for individuals living with development delay, behavioural issues, and/or mental illness.

Youth Programs

Our Youth Program is a licensed housing solution for youths aged 12-18 years who are intellectually challenged and/or dually-diagnosed and who are difficult to place due to problematic behaviours. Our residents are living with a wide range of diagnosis including but not limited to Borderline Personality Disorder, FASD, Autism, Prader-Willi Syndrome, PDD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, OCD, and ADD.

Adult Programs

Our Adult Program offers long term housing options for adults living with psychological, psychiatric, emotional, social and physical d bilities. We provide a safe and encouraging environment where residents not only have a say in what goes on in the home, but also get to participate in a variety of activities that will help develop essential life skills.

Transitional Programs

Our Transitional Program is designed to provide individuals who have the potential for independent living but currently lack the skills required to do so. Country Haven Acres provides a dedicated staff who help individuals realize their potential and offers support and encouragement along the way.

ISA Program

Our ISA program opened in May 2016, it is an opportunity for a youth and/or adult to live independently in a spacious and quiet setting with constant staff support. This program has five acres attached to it allowing for a beautiful and peaceful environment.

Our Vision

Country Haven Acres is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for children or adults living with developmental disabilities and/or mental health issues. We strive to enhance and optimize each individual's quality of life by respecting their rights and responding to their changing needs. We encourage each individual to explore and discover their full potential within a nurturing homelike setting.

about us

We started Country Haven Acres to catch kids falling through the cracks and soon saw the need to extend the safety net for them as they aged out of youth care and into adult services. Many of our kids transition into one of our adult homes which provides them with a seamless continuation of programming, services, peer relationships, and community involvement.
