JF&CS in the Schools

Our School Social Work program is a service of consultation and treatment offered to children who attend schools in the GTA and their families. We work with Jewish Day Schools and public schools with significant Jewish populations to provide:

  • early detection and intervention in cases where children might be at risk
  • family life education
  • skills training
  • group programs
  • referral services for students and families
  • consultation to teachers and other professionals.

Our school social workers collaborate with school staff to identify and respond to existing and potential problems, from learning difficulties to family issues, from emotional well-being to suspicions of neglect or abuse.
