In November of 1996 YACRO opened two children’s small options homes in Lower Sackville.


How and why did this happen?


The Department of Community Services was closing the Children’s Training Center in Dartmouth and approached YACRO, because of their proven experience supporting Children, to expand services.  Noting the considerable distance between the main office and these programs, the board and Senior Managers considered all of the pros and cons. In the end, providing quality community support to as many individuals as possible won out.


After countless discussions and strategic plans, YACRO decided to embark on this venture which sparked the large program that exists in the Metro area today.
