Fairview provides safe, secure housing and wraparound supports to those on day parole, or on conditional release with residency conditions from federal institutions. Fairview is located in Kamloops and is designed to meet the unique needs of women, providing person-centered support services with a focus on reuniting residents with their families, children, and community.
The 6-bed home contains both single and double units. Where other CRFs are adult-only, Fairview can accommodate mothers and children. The all-female staff team provides support services based on residents’ personal goals, and residents can access a variety of health and life skills enhancement programs that foster self-reliance and independence.
Residents also have access to Indigenous-focused programming and are connected to supports and resources related to every aspect of their reintegration efforts such as:
- Mental health
- Education goals
Staff also provide support and information on obtaining housing, personal identification, medical coverage, banking services, and recreational opportunities. With staff support and advocacy, residents can navigate potential obstacles to reintegration, and build positive local connections.
Fairview operates under contract with the Correctional Service of Canada. All residents are subject to both general and specific conditions of release.
By bridging the gap between the institution and the community, Fairview contributes to community safety and supports residents to affect positive changes in their lives.
