Onsite Provisions

Onsite we offer office space where families and youth may come in and meet face to face with staff in privacy for sessions. We will also offer offsite peer mentorship and therapeutic training and support meetings for the youth. In pre agreed upon circumstances we will accompany families to court, and advocate for family where needed and assist with applying for community resources
