Philosophy and Service Approach

Yorktown’s service approach for all programs is one that reflects a strength-based, client-centred, collaborative process and considers the child/youth and /or family within their whole context. This holistic approach supports the individual needs and preferences of each service participant and recognizes the importance of family, community and culture. Yorktown is committed to delivering accessible services which is reflected in our flexible service hours, collaborative and responsive programs and availability to meet clients in the community when appropriate and necessary. Some programs are provided in specific languages and for all programs interpreters are used as needed.  All services are provided in a confidential manner and include a comprehensive range of prevention, early intervention and treatment programs.

Yorktown does not discriminate against anyone based on race, colour, place of origin, ethnicity, citizenship, ancestry, native language, creed, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, age, economic condition, place of residence, physical and mental ability.

Yorktown is committed to creating and maintaining an environment that is safe and free from harassment and discrimination.
