Felise's Testimonial

“The onboarding process was long, but the team guided me and provided the tools and training to offer quality care.”

TFC Philosophy  

At Oak Hill, we’re deeply committed to promoting a framework that facilitates and creates positive change in the lives of the children, youth and families we support. We understand the profound importance of healthy developmental relationships, maintaining strong connections to formal and informal support networks, exploring a safe environment and practicing a culturally responsive approach. By actively listening and learning about each child’s unique journey, we aim to create an environment where they feel seen, understood, and valued. This deep understanding helps us offer care that not only respects their traditions and connections but promotes healthy new experiences. We believe that by celebrating and nurturing each child’s cultural identity, we can be change agents to support a sense of belonging and purpose that fosters confidence and improved self-worth.
