GFLY is an organization that builds capacity with youth in the criminal justice system (Black and Indigenous youth as the focus) communities by delivering continuous support to clients in this sector. We here at GFLY are committed to using best practices to improve the overall outcomes for the youth in our program. Our agency is grounded on providing a family-like environment and focusing on continuous support for the youth which will provide consistency and enable the building of a supportive structure for the youth we serve. Our program reflects the growth of behavioural issues in the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual realms. Each client will have a specialized worker to assist them in creating a program that will prepare them for adulthood while still allowing them to enjoy their youth. All our homes will consist of a foster parent or mentor, a designated resource worker, and a specialized youth worker. We will also leverage our community partnerships to create opportunities for the youth to participate in mentorship and community engagement initiatives. We will have homes located all throughout the different regions in Ontario to best suit the needs of the youth we serve.
