Designed to provide counselling supports for at-risk children, youth, and their families.

Simon Fraser University and DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society partner to provide the SAFE Community Clinical Counselling program to children, youth, and their families in the Surrey area who are vulnerable to gang involvement and are displaying risk factors. With a focus on South Asian and Arabic immigrant and refugee families, services are offered in the appropriate languages and cultural context.

Counsellors will work one-on-one, as well as in groups with youth and their parents or caregivers, to increase confidence, self-esteem and connections to family, culture and community.

Services are based on referrals for children, youth and families with gang involvement or who are at risk for gang involvement. Services include risk assessment, case management and consultation.

Location

This program is primarily delivered at the DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society’s Community Campus - 13455 76 Avenue, Surrey, with some services provided at SFU Surrey Counselling Centre.

Office hours

Office hours vary based on client need. Generally, counselling services are available Sunday to Thursday from 9:00 am to 8 pm.
