About Us

Regesh Family and Child Services is known for its clinical treatment of children, youth and families that come from diverse communities. We went through many transitions to build accessible and responsive services we offer today.

We rely on donations to sustain our work. We provide subsidies for our services based on family income. We aim to provide services to everyone seeking our help.

Regesh Family and Child Services is a registered Canadian charity
