    The ReNew program sounds wonderful. Just wondering if there has been any shift with regards to also working with girls as I have a family in desperate need.

    Hi Rebecca,

    Thank you for your comment – it certainly is a fantastic program.

    PeakCare recommends reaching out to DVAC and Carinity to find out if there has been any expansion of the program’s scope, or if there are similar services being offered which focus on working with girls and young women based on the ReNew model.
