New FASD Youth Justice Program Available Now

We are excited to introduce a new FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder) Youth Justice Program to Hamilton and surrounding areas, which has been funded by the Department of Justice Canada.

ALL 4 ONE is a program that provides intervention and support to justice involved youth (aged 12-17), and their caregivers, living with FASD, or querying a diagnosis. This program is client-centered and directed, with a focus on the strengths and abilities of the individual.

ALL 4 ONE understands that for FASD impacted youth who are justice involved, individualized case management and family support are essential components to prevent further recidivism. In turn, ALL 4 ONE is committed to building a community of practice amongst justice professionals regarding issues and concerns of FASD impacted youth engaged in the justice system to obtain best outcomes.

Mindful of the unique, lifelong challenges presented to these individuals, ALL 4 ONE is comprised of a Family Support Worker and a Youth Worker, who will provide wide-ranging assistance to both youth and caregivers, as they navigate the judicial system, access community resources, and expand their networks of support in developing the young person’s circle of care.

Please click here to see the brochure which will provide further details of the ALL 4 ONE program, and the various supports it can offer to youth and their caregivers.
