Our Programs



A Member of the HomeBridge Community since 1979.

Owned and operated by HomeBridge Youth Society.

Located in Dartmouth.

The Hawthorne House program’s current mandate focuses on providing care for six youth 12 - 18 years of age.


Hawthorne House was the first facility of HomeBridge Youth Society, formally the Association for the Development of Children’s Residential Facilities, which opened in Dartmouth in February 1979. It was opened in response to a need from child welfare workers for an assessment centre for boys and girls, 10 to 16 years old.

Hawthorne House is the only facility owned by HomeBridge Youth Society.
