Youth Justice Family Worker Program

The Youth Justice Family Worker provides support to the families of youth in conflict with the law to support rehabilitation and address situations that put youth at risk for re-offending. The YJFW delivers high quality support services for families of young persons aged 12-17  in conflict with the law in their homes and schools and in the community at large. We offer a range of individualized programs based on their criminogenic needs as well as the youth and family’s strengths and resources.
