"I was reluctant at the beginning but they were able to help me with my problems. I was a little leery of some of the RCMP and AFM but that has changed. There is nothing I didn't like and I would recommend this program to other families/youth."
"Very beneficial. Great for youth to see the supports they have and for them to be included in a meeting as they know it is all about them and the Team is trying to help them in any way we can."
A client participated in this program and was surrounded with a superb team! We developed a realistic case plan with the youth. He was able to persever, gain confidence and work in achieving his goals. He was provided a strong team to meet his needs and he worked extremely hard in achieving the goals he set for himself. He was able to graduate from high school with his class, is currently working full time in a career he takes pride in and he not been re-involved with the Justice System. This program has been a major factor in this client's success!
"So far this program has helped me in many extraordinary ways including school, mental wellness, getting my car fixed, getting a bike and creating an amazing support team. Since joining, my life has improved in amazing ways. They have helped me finish school, which is something I never thought would have been possible. I am extremely thankful and in awe of what this program has done in my life."
"I received a referral for a student who had not attended school in several months. Prior to that they had been extremely violent towards staff and school property to the point that RCMP were being called. With their multi-disciplinary team, we reviewed their psychological assessment and created a plan that included moving to a new school and supporting the parent in setting boundaries. Home now reports being a much more positive place and the youth has only missed one day in the last 4 months."
"These programs are an integral part of our community. The care, concern and professionalism that the coordinators show to their clients is truly inspiring. I continue to be honoured to sit on many of these teams. This program offers my students and their families the opportunity to build connection, to tear down walls, to be given a voice, to build a stronger village and ultimately watch their family member soar. As a Learning Support Teacher, I truly appreciate having a program that goes above and beyond for kids and now for adults. I have seen this program help so many students and families through some of their darkest days and the true gift is seeing them coming out on the other side as a confident, well rounded, supported member of society."
