Our team is comprised of a diverse group of professionals all with the common goal of supporting and enriching the lives of the children, youth, and families we work with.
All members of our team have relevant education and extensive experience working in the Human Services field. In addition each member has a clear Police Check and Child Intervention Record Search.
Staff members are required to complete a series of ongoing trainings that are both identified through accreditation, as well as research and development.
Ongoing training ensures our staff are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to support the children, youth, and families we serve.
Evidence-based programs are programs that have been standardized, controlled and carefully evaluated. These programs ensure that clients are receiving the best programming available.
"Trauma-informed care is a strengths based framework that is grounded in an understanding of and responsiveness to the impact of trauma, that emphasizes physical, psychological, and emotional safety for both providers and survivors, and that creates opportunities for survivors to rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.”
(Hopper, Bassuk, & Olivet, 2010)
Using a strengths based practice means having a collaborative process between the person supported by services and those supporting them, allowing them to work together to determine an outcome that draws on the person's strengths and assets.
Individualized planning for our clients means that they receive support in the areas that matter and are relevant to the areas in life that require focus and attention.
Having a diverse and inclusive agency aids in our overall perspective on client needs, programming, and overall well-being.
Our agency believes collaboration between other agencies, professionals, and support networks. We know that in doing so we can increase the effectiveness of support we provide to our clients.
