Steinbach and surrounding communities have access to nearly 150 local resources. Please call us for resource suggestions. We would be happy to help you.
All of our programs are available to those that live within the Hanover School Division catchment area.
We support struggling youth and their families, using agencies to create support teams around them. It is a program that helps youth, who are the largest consumers of policing, CFS, Probation Services, and are often struggling in school. The key to the Headway is that we involve the youth and their family as part of the support team. There, they can openly share and address what the real issues are.
Understanding the reason behind the behaviour is necessary to creating a successful plan that provides supports for the youth and increases their chance of success, while decreasing the burden on social service and policing agencies.
The goal of Headway is to ensure that youth are moving forward in becoming active, resilient and productive members of their communities, no longer engaged in activities that are harmful to their physical, mental, spiritual or emotional health and well-being or to their community.
REACHING OUT FOR ASSISTANCE IS A STRENGTH, NOT A WEAKNESS

A five-week parenting course for parents and guardians who are experiencing conflict with their teen. In the course, we talk about ways that parents can improve communication with their teenager and re-connect in ways that will benefit the teen’s home, community, and school situation. We discuss natural consequences, limit setting, and strategies to help improve teenagers' decision-making skills and problem-solving abilities. Participants will learn about attachment and how it affects parenting and connection, as well as new ways to improve relationships and discover some solutions to the roadblocks that parents frequently encounter.
"So far Headway has helped me in many extraordinary ways including school, mental wellness, getting my car fixed, getting a bike and creating an amazing support team. Since joining with Headway, my life has improved in amazing ways. They have helped me finish school which is something I never thought would have been possible. I am extremely thankful and in awe of what Headway has done in my life!" - 16 year old Headway Client
If you are a client of the HEADWAY Program, chances are excellent that you are going to learn about new resources that could assist you. Last year, 100% of clients involved in the HEADWAY program accessed new services with the assistance of their support team. In each meeting with a client, whether a consultation meeting or a team meeting, the need for resources is assessed, determined and accessed. If we can address each challenge that the person is encountering through enlisting community resources we are breaking down barriers, increasing the opportunity for success and showing our clients that reaching out for assistance is a strength, not a weakness.
