Family Resources and Services
Family Support Workers and local Counsellors offer support and access to resources for vulnerable families. We work with families on an individual basis to build success and promote strengths. The CRC works to ensure that all children across the SGIs have a healthy start in life.
In all our programs we offer a safe and welcoming environment to help support children in reaching their full potential. Our current partnerships are designed to promote positive child development, support school readiness skills, introduce families to resources and supports in their community, and provide individual support and advocacy for families.
A growing area, we currently offer :
- Mediation (family communication)
- Individual and family support.
- Navigation and referral to community resources.
- Mentoring and coaching.
- Discretionary and time-limited emergency resources such as food and or transportation.
Please call the SGICRC at 250-629-3665 for referrals to Counsellors and further family assistance.
We are currently assessing the level of difficulties family are encountering during COVID include stress and isolation and abuse. We will be posting information and resources shortly in this area.
