The CYAC Model

Boost CYAC brings together police, child protection, medical and mental health professionals, as well as dedicated child and family advocates, to work under one roof to provide a coordinated response to children, youth and their families when child abuse occurs. This innovative model is a significant shift in service delivery in Toronto and has vastly improved the way services are provided. Now, children, youth and families only have to go to one location when abuse is reported to receive all of the services that are required and they will no longer be further victimized and traumatized by having to repeat what has happened to them many times.

What others

“My experience was amazing. I felt so supported and welcome at Boost. I knew that I had so many choices and I felt safe. My therapist helped me feel safe outside of Boost too. I know who I am and I like who I am now. It’s easier to talk about my life with other people and I feeling so much better.”
