Quispamsis Youth Home Update

By the end of the month, the new youth home for at risk teenagers in Quispamsis will have it's first resident. The home at 186 Vincent Road has been a fire-ball of controversy since it was unveiled earlier this year. Renovations are now complete and staff training continues. Mel Kennah is Executive Director of Moncton Youth Services and tells CHSJ News, the number of residents staying at the home will be closely monitored.

A second and third resident isn't expected at the home for up to a year. Kennah adds he is aware of the appeals that have been filed and looks forward to the opportunity of a hearing to ensure no back door deal was done to have this approved.
