Common issues that we help youth deal with include physical and sexual abuse, school issues, violence, issues of grief and death, family conflict, separation and divorce, alcohol and drug misuse, depression, eating disorders, sexuality and suicidal and self-harming behaviours.

- Two Wraparound programs that prevent child welfare clients from being admitted into care
- Young Parents of No Fixed Address
