Incorporated in 1989, Youth In Transition was at first a volunteer organization. Board members concentrated their efforts of research, program development, public education and fundraising. The early goal was to develop a sustainable residence, Chrysalis House, to be operated by Youth In Transition. A residence was built at cost by the Fredericton Homebuilders Association in 1996. In the spring of 1996, NB Housing assumed the mortgage, leaving us free of debt.
