Intersections Program

Intersections is an evidence–informed early intervention program for children and youth who are at-risk of becoming justice-involved and it provides supports to their families as needed. These young individuals and/or their families often come into contact with police because of situations related to mental health issues or illnesses, childhood and youth developmental issues and/or substance use issues. In order to reduce and prevent further interaction with police services and the justice system, this program helps young individuals and/or their families to access available support services within the community.

Thanks to a 3 year grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, we have upscaled Intersections to include Family and Children's Services as a referral source and hired a social worker to provide interim counselling for clients and families.
