Group Name: Native Child & Family Services of Toronto – Youth and Parents (YAP)
Description: Native Child and Family Services of Toronto (NCFST) was founded in 1986 by concerned members of Toronto’s Native community. The founders were concerned about the high number of children in the care of Children’s Aid Societies and by the issues, such as poverty, addictions, family violence, and homelessness, confronting Native families in the city. The founders were further concerned that while the Native family had many issues before it, few services within the mainstream sector were available to meet the needs of an increasingly voiceless and marginalized community.
Youth and Parents (YAP)
This 12-week program is for parents and youth aged 13 to 17. It is designed to help parents and their teens communicate with each other and lean strategies to create and maintain a positive family atmosphere. The program incorporates traditional culture and spirituality.
