The Y-House Foundation Inc.

The First Floor

Y-House First

The Y-House model was specifically designed around two key ideas; that young people are able to better recover and rehabilitate in an environment with people their own age that they can work with and build off of, but also that they also need their own space, not only for privacy but to develop independence. This is the reason that the house has been split into two floors that accommodate both of these principals.

Whilst the ground floor of Y-House centres around shared living spaces and working with each other to forge better individual recovery paths, the first floor provides individual living spaces to give Y-House residents independence and privacy within their own space.

Y-House is all about getting you back on your feet – literally and figuratively – and back to family, friends and living life the way you chose. With on-site rehab facilities including gym and pool providing the necessary tools for a quicker physics recovery, Y-House will also provide a youthful, vibrant and stimulating social environment, providing for a quicker emotional recovery. The Y-House project will cost an estimated $3.5 million in total and is set to service 25 people at a time and anywhere up to 400 people in the first 5 years depending on the length of each individual stay.
