The Child Youth & Family Services (CYFS) Program is a voluntary community based program for children and youth between the ages of 6-18 years of age who are experiencing behavioural and/or social difficulties and who may be at risk of individual or family breakdown.

The CYFS Program is a community based outreach program.  During service the worker will often engage children and youth in community based activities to help work towards individual goals and outcomes.  As part of the program participants may also be socialized with other peers and engage in group activities.
