About

The Child, Youth and Family Services Coalition (Coalition) of Simcoe County is a countywide alliance of organizations providing services to children, youth and their families in Simcoe County. Our mission is to maximize the capacity, effectiveness and cultural uniqueness of the child, youth and family services system through collective efforts.

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 well-being of children, youth, and families.
