Intensive Family Support

Through our KKAT (Keeping Kids at Home) Program, YCSS work intensively alongside families to identify areas of need. We develop strategies and supportive tools that restore families in crisis or prevent further intervention from Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women.

The child, young person and family will be supported in their access to mainstream services, develop their ability to independently address issues, develop resilience, encourage protective behaviors and become self-reliant beyond intervention.  YCSS offers collaborative case management and assessment processes and referral pathways to other professionals and services.
