Description & Services
DescriptionServices offered include: Child Protective Services - formerly provided by the Children's Aid Society. Children's Mental Health Services - formerly provided by the Lester B. Pearson Centre, Child Development and Prevention services - formerly provided by Heritage Children's Centre * As an amalgamated agency, we base our services on these facts: a continuum of integrated services in a multidisciplinary setting provides the greatest flexibility of quality services to meet the individual needs of children and their families; easier access to service through a reduced number of access points is provided by a single point of access; responding earlier to young children and their families who are at risk; with limited resources for those in need of intervention services, the system must ensure that those most at risk will receive essential supports; customized services are provided through the use of the single service contract to ensure that individuals will receive services that respond to their needs.
