Youth Justice Family Worker
The program provides support to the families of youth in conflict with the law or at high risk for contact, age 12-17. Families may be referred through Probation Services, Crown Attorney and other youth serving organizations. Family Workers engage youth and families to collaboratively identify their needs, their strengths and provide therapeutic services to reduce the factors that may be contributing to the youth’s risk for contact with the justice system. The program will work closely with other service providers to ensure the coordination of services and case management.
