Parkerville Children and Youth Care protects and cares for the most vulnerable children and youth in the community, through the provision of a therapeutic environment that utilises a range of professional services. Its core business remains its response to the “high needs child”. Many of those children and youth have suffered chronic histories of multiple abuse and display a range of trauma-related behaviours. Out of Home Care for children and youth will always remain its core business. However, Parkerville Children and Youth Care also offers valuable outreach services and programmes to the wider community for children, youth and families in need.
