Staff work alongside the family through this journey helping to bring understanding, support, and guidance.

Supports generally involve:

  • Assessing the specific needs of the family and developing goals together
  • Promoting healthy, safe parent-child relationships and overall family wellness
  • Connecting family members to key services and supports in the community in a way that works for them
  • Working as a team with the family and Ministry social workers through the Integrated Case Management approac
  • Helping families find new ways to meet life’s challenges and stressors

Referrals come from the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD).
