This program seeks to support youth who are living independently in our community. Children’s Services Agencies are able to utilize our qualified Child and Youth Worker's to offer extra support during the transition to independence. Perspective Youth Services is able to provide a staff that meets with the youth in their home, to help them with independence skills such as budgeting, grocery shopping, paying bills, and transportation to medical appointments, etc.
Children’s Services Agencies are able to utilize our qualified Child and Youth Worker's on a temporary basis. Whether for a one-time activity or over several month, our Child and Youth Workers are available to support the youth of our community. For example: an agency could use a youth worker to transport a youth from one placement to another, to attend court on behalf of the guardian, or to attend an cultural event with the youth.
Children’s Services Agencies who are seeking to support a youth that is transitioning back into their family home are able to use our Child and Youth Workers. Perspective Youth Services can provide a staff to go into the family home for several hours per week and work with the youth and their family members on reintegration, to help reduce the risk of placement breakdown.
