Building a community of support.
Together, we can help children, youth and families build their futures free from violence, abuse and neglect.
With one-in-three girls and one-in-five boys experiencing some form of abuse by the age of 18, the demand for our services is great and timely access to support is critical.
Child abuse has significant effects on us all. Abuse knows no socio-economic boundaries; no gender or age is left unaffected. Victims of abuse may face anxiety, post-traumatic-stress, low self-esteem, trouble concentrating, difficulties in school, substance abuse and re-victimization. With the generosity of donors, corporate partners and funders, children and youth are provided a safe and supportive place to tell their story and start writing their next chapter full of hope, healing and safety.
Where does your money go?
Through the support of our generous and committed donors, corporate partners and funders, Radius Child and Youth Services helps hundreds of children and youth annually who have been affected by abuse, neglect and violence. Our services are provided free of charge to our clients and their families.

Why we need your help
We are creating healthy futures. We want what is best for children and youth and want to do everything we can to get them back on track. Their lives have been derailed, but we help guide them back and point to the future … it ignites hope.Nancy Falls, Manager of Training and Consultation
Radius is unique because it works with the issue of trauma from all perspectives – with the family system, with the person who has caused harm, and with the person who has experienced harm. In this way, the needs of the family as a whole are considered.Jillian Steinberg, Clinical Therapist
