Our Crisis Team performs front-line crisis intervention for run-away, locked out, homeless and ungovernable youth. Services are available 24 hours a day every day of the year. Crisis services allow youth to be diverted from the child welfare and criminal justice systems. Our professional staff provides immediate assessment of the facts leading to the crisis and decides whether the client can return home safely or be temporarily housed in a shelter. The family may follow up with counselling at the TGSF centre to reduce the chance of future crisis situations at home.’
