Connections: Family Supports

Our Family Support Workers provide support, education and a caring ear to all our families.
Visits are typically in the home but can take place anywhere in the community at the participant’s request.

Family Support Workers assist the parent(s) in identifying their strengths, challenges, needs and successes of parenting.

Goals are often around child development, establishing routines, home safety, budgeting, nutrition and other matters of importance to the family.

We offer concrete, practical solutions that help make life more manageable for the family.

Information and support is also offered on accessing community supports and services.
