This project would expand on existing relationships to develop a placed-based community response strategy addressing the underlying issues putting our youth at risk. Establishing strategic coordination and collaboration between After-Hours, MCFD, VACFSS, VPD, non-profit organizations, housing providers and landlords, Hospital Emergency and health care. The creation of a comprehensive strategy resulting in the collaboration of multiple stakeholders rather the crisis driven intervention response that currently exists. A two-pronged approach will enhance the community's ability to continue work with youth at risk while facilitating the needed changes. Implementing a Circle of Care through one to one work with youth, their identified supports and networks; addressing both immediate needs and facilitating community involvement in the place-based community response strategy. This would result in the creation of a cooperative integrated model that builds the capacity of the community and strengthens positive outcomes for youth.
