April 21, 2022
Service Delivery Update

In order to ensure the health and safety of the communities we serve, we are currently offering the option to access all programs virtually, as well as in-person Walk-in Rapid Access Therapy at the West Toronto Youth Hub.

Yorktown Family Services follows all Public Health PPE guidelines, and pre-screening forms are required prior to in-person services. Masks are to be worn, and social distancing measures followed, at all times.

Yorktown Family Service will continue to work within Public Health guidelines. Please check back for updates to any changes in our service delivery as they become available.

Please note that while we continue to provide Rapid Access Therapy, Yorktown Family Services is currently experiencing staffing shortages. As a result, wait times may be longer than expected and closures may occur. We regret the inconvenience to our clients and service partners. Updates will be provided as they occur.

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for mental health services has increased dramatically. Yorktown Family Services is experiencing a wait-list of up to six months for Ongoing Family Therapy.

Please call our Rapid Access Virtual Service for assistance at:
416-669-3521. You will receive a response within 48—72 hours.

For inquiries related to other virtual and in-person programs and groups services, and general inquiries please call 416-669-3521.
