Congratulations to Ann Wallington and Dr. Ashley Hosker-Field of Humber College's Faculty of Social and Community Services on sharing their research findings at the 2024 American Psychology Law Society Annual Conference in Los Angeles.

Their project, Community Agency Partnerships: Best Practices for the Creation of Healthy Communities, examines inter-agency collaboration in the social service sector and the effects of those partnerships on at-risk youth. 
The project aims to identify best practices in creating and maintaining partnerships, ensuring programs are trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, free from systemic racism, and aligned with reconciliation efforts, with the overall objective of reducing youth crime in Canada. 

The project, which is funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), is in partnership with the John Howard Society of Saskatchewan and Street Culture Project Inc.
