What We Do

Futures Forward is a collaboration of three organizations which aim to reduce barriers young people exiting Child and Family Services (CFS) in Manitoba face as they transition into adulthood between the ages of 15-29 years old.

The Futures Forward collaborative includes Youth Employment Services Manitoba, Community Financial Counselling Services and Canadian Mental Health Association.

Together youth receive support in:

    • Education planning, such as help career planning, applying to post-secondary school, finishing high school, and making a funding plan;
    • Finding a job, such as help writing resumes and cover letters, practicing interview skills, and job searching;
    • Finding housing, such as help finding rentals, applying to low-income housing, and applying to grants for low-income individuals;
    • Access to mental health counselling;
    • Getting ID;
    • Navigating systems such as CFS, health, and grant applications;
    • Financial counselling support, such as free tax filing services, budgeting help, and financial planning;
    • Referral to services;
    • Indigenous cultural programming.
