The Crise-Ado-Famille-Enfance (CAFE) program
This program is designed to help children aged 5 to 17 years, as well as their families, when they are going through a major family crisis. Its aim is to find solutions to avoid a placement or a report to the Director of Youth Protection (DYP). The CAFE teams:
- intervene within two hours of receiving a phone call, directly at the scene of the event (home, school, etc.)
- monitor the situation in order to restore calm
- are available from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. every day of the year
To get help from a CAFE team:
- during normal office hours: contact our CLSC
- outside office hours: call Info-Santé (811) or one of the Montréal Youth Centres
