For children and youth to thrive in school and life, they need to grow up strong and healthy. All of our health and nutrition programs are designed to permeate family life. And we have tailored them to address the whole body and all aspects of behavioral wellness.
A full array of physical, dental, and behavioral health services provide many thousands with access to the high-quality care that every person deserves. Fitness and creative expression are fundamental to young people realizing their potential. Counseling and education empower young adults to make sound decisions that will have lasting consequences for their future. Kids and families have a host of ways to embed nutrition into their lives.

As parents and children head “back to school,” the landscape looks very different this year. But one thing hasn’t changed: the importance of ensuring kids are up-to-date on their required vaccinations.
Our care coordinators are more than trained health professionals, they are dedicated specialists that help Children’s Aid families on a very personal level.
