When we first meet with a family, we ask about their connections, family members and/or other supports. It is crucial to engage as many people as possible from the beginning of our involvement to help build support systems. Finding and maintaining supportive lifelong connections for children and youth is integral to our work.

A large part of a child or youth’s identity is made up of the people they grow up with and the experiences they share with loved ones. Our aim is to ensure every child and youth has a network of safe adults they can turn to as they grow and transition into adulthood.
