Amber is a young woman who lived in a series of different group settings in Victoria over the course of several years. As she got older, it became increasingly apparent that this was not an ideal situation. Amber is sensitive to her environment and to those around her. She was not compatible with many of the individuals with whom she was living. Her mother, Maureen, recognized that Amber needed something different and advocated for her to move to a home sharing situation that would bring her closer to her home in the Cowichan Valley.
