YouthReach

What is YouthReach?

YouthReach was established in August 2006 and is an innovative recovery programme for children and youth identified with emotional and/or psychological issues. It uses a personalised family-centred model in its service delivery process. Our staff work in partnership with clients and their families to empower them to achieve their goals and live in a safe, caring and inclusive community.

 

Goals

  • To develop client’s social and functional competencies through life skills training
  • To enhance family strengths and resources in order to minimise risk, promote safety and improve functioning
  • To assist and equip families in caring for their children

 

What will it take for a child to live successfully in his/her own community?

The answer lies in the client, his/her family and support system members coming together in a team to identify strengths, needs and goals. Partnering with YouthReach, this team develops, facilitates and evaluates a comprehensive service plan.

Each plan is tailored to meet the unique needs of the client and family in all aspects of life, including emotional, safety, school integration, vocational, health, spiritual and cultural matters.
