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.
“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.”
– Anonymous Youth
We are passionate about our work and focused on the best interests of the children and youth whom we serve. We recognize the uniqueness of each child and strive to adapt our services to be responsive and flexible to each situation.
We work closely with our community partners to develop, deliver, and coordinate services. We are dedicated to mutual sharing of expertise and knowledge with other agencies, professionals, and the broader community.
We are committed to continuous learning to ensure our knowledge and skill levels are second to none. We are up- to-date on the latest research and developments, related to the services we provide, so that we can develop and promote best practices.
By putting children’s needs first, we work at building effective relationships with children, youth, and their families. By our words and actions, we demonstrate respect for the children, youth and families we serve.
