Blue Hills Child and Family Centre
The York Centre for Children, Youth and Families


Both I and the Boards of Directors of Blue Hills Child and Family Centre and The York Centre for Children, Youth and Families are very pleased to announce that our organizations have amalgamated. As of November 1st, we are all very proud to be moving forward as York Hills Centre for Children, Youth and Families.

York Hills Centre provides a spectrum of high quality services to children and youth ages 0- 18 years and their families. Our assessment and treatment services include a range of dedicated professional staff that are delivering individual, family and group counselling, community and in-school clinical supports, residential services, day treatment services, alternative dispute resolution, family mediation, etc.

As a newly merged organization we look forward to more efficiently and effectively delivering a broader continuum of treatment and assessment services.
