About Us

Our Mission:

To maximize the capacity, effectiveness and cultural uniqueness of the child, youth and family services system through collective efforts.

The Child, Youth and Family Services Coalition is a countywide alliance of organizations providing services to children, youth and their families in Simcoe County.

Formed in 1999, the Coalition evolved from a commitment by children’s service providers to find ways to establish a streamlined, unified planning process that would lead to improved outcomes for children. This vision quickly expanded into a strategic, collaborative and integrated planning infrastructure allowing members to work both together and independently to meet the shared vision of improving the present and future wellbeing of children, youth and families. Work began on made-in-Simcoe action plans after the official launch of the Coalition in September 2003.
