Recently I had the pleasure of attending a Family Finding Conference during the month of February. Held by the Children’s Aid Society of Oxford County, located in Woodstock Ontario, it was a week-long training termed “boot camp”. We were incredibly lucky to have Kevin Campbell, an internationally known youth permanency expert, founder of the Center for Family Finding and Youth Connectedness and developer of the Family Finding model instructing us.
Niagara Resource Service for Youth
The RAFT is operated by the Niagara Resource Service for Youth and helps kids living on the street and those at risk of being on the street learn skills for leading healthy, productive lives.
Through its Neighbourhood Awakening and After School Programs, the RAFT helps young people and local groups make positive changes in their neighbourhoods.
Since the beginning, our community has generously supported the RAFT through both financial and in kind donations.
Without your support the RAFT would not exist.
Help support RAFT and its mission by making a donation.
RAFT services strengthen the emotional and social well being of clients while acting as a portal to community resources.
