Collaborative Youth & Family Services

Program Overview

The Collaborative Youth & Family Services program provides intensive, strengths-based, short-term intervention, support, and counselling to assist youth ages 12-15 to reintegrate into and/or to remain in their family home. The program works with youth and families in their homes and communities to identify strengths, challenges, and needs. The goal of the program is to help the youth and family increase communication skills, reduce conflict in the home, enhance parenting skills, build family coping and problem-solving skills, strengthen parent-teen connection, improve emotional stability, and increase the youth’s involvement in school, employment, and connection to pro-social activities.
