Child Development & Youth Services

Child Development and Youth Services programs are family-centered, inclusive and promote active participation in supporting pregnant women, new moms, parents, caregivers, children and youth. We also provide programs in prevention, intervention and support for youth and children with a developmental delay or diagnosed disability. Services to youth include life skills development, outreach and one to one support with a focus on community inclusion and client-centred practice.
