Christina collaborates on the Line with Jessie Caryl (Our Advocate – Lawyer). They assist grandparents and relatives raising children to navigate complex systems such as the Ministry of Children and Family Development, Legal Aid, and the courts; to find the answers, assistance, and resources needed to prevent or solve problems; and to advise on benefits and services that will support the entire family.
