Note: Tailored Youth and Family Services was formerly known as Creative Times and Early Intervention & Activities (EIA).

Tailored Youth and Family Services is an innovative program that works with children, youth and their families going through challenging times. This service has a focus on supporting people by promoting individual, family and community strengths. The service works alongside families by providing a safe place for them to notice and celebrate the things that are working well and to share ideas to explore new ways of working together, having fun and looking out for each other.
