PROGRAM TO INCLUDE
Youth and Family Resiliency: A Cornerstone of the Peterborough Drug Strategy
by Kerri Kightley
Kerri Kightley is a community developer in Peterborough Ontario. After studying at Laurentian University in Sudbury Ontario, Kerri relocated to Toronto in 1998 where she helped develop the first 24hr drop-in and shelter program in Toronto. In 2002, Kerri began work in Peterborough, Ontario alongside an innovative team developing programs and building/renovating space for Y.E.S, the Youth Emergency Shelter. In 2008 as a response to the opiate crisis in Ontario, Kerri helped to build The Peterborough Drug Strategy, a collaborative initiative based on the four pillars of Prevention, Harm Reduction, Treatment and Enforcement striving to reduce the harms associated with substance use. As Strategy Manager, Kerri was instrumental in introducing PAD’s Peer Education and Strengthening Families Programs as part of the focus on youth and family resiliency. Recently, Kerri has taken the position of Regional Housing Coordinator for Fourcast, to work with service providers and the municipalities around Peterborough to build capacity for a regional Housing First Program.
