About Youth Services

Westcoast Family Centres promotes accessibility and inclusion within our communities. Specifically, we offer the Child and Youth Support Needs (CYSN): Life Skills Development Program in collaboration with Community Ventures Society.

The program provides one-to-one support for children and youth with special needs referred by MCFD aged 6-18 in the Tri-Cities area. Our goal is to improve on life and social skills, as well as connect children and youth with community support and resources. This service is referral-only.

Examples of activities we coordinate with youth:

  • Cooking
  • Playing sports
  • Board games
  • Social events

Transportation for Child and Youth in Care

The Transportation Services for Children and Youth primarily serves children and youth from birth to 18 years who are in the care of the Ministry. These children and youth may have experienced adverse life events including trauma, neglect, abuse and/or separation and loss. We have created a centralized referral system to ensure for proficient service delivery, and matching staff with the referral case based on the family’s needs.
