We provide specialized services to children and youth under 18 years of age who have experienced abuse, and their families. Boost CYAC receives referrals from child protection for the most serious cases of assault, sexual exploitation, and complex trauma, as well as all cases involving young victims of sex trafficking and child homicides in the city of Toronto.
