Our Intensive Family Support Program is a client centered, trauma informed home visiting program for families.
In this program we focus on reducing risk and capitalizing on strengths within families to:
- Prevent the removal of children from families
- Reunite children with their families
- Keep children in family’s care and preserve the family unit
We strongly believe that each family is special, unique and full of strengths.
With this in mind, we provide a strengths based model of support that does not follow a curriculum in order to “meet a family where they are at” and accomplish goals catered to each family.
Ultimately, our goal is to promote happy, healthy families.

Newcomer Family Support
Our Newcomer Family Support program provides personalized social settlement strategies and support services to newcomer families with children of all ages, both in their homes and the community.
To receive these services families must be permanent residents of Canada, refugees or other protected persons.
In this program, our support staff helps families identify and build on their strengths through prevention, early intervention and education in a variety of areas. Some include but are not limited to:
- Parenting Skills – Promoting positive parenting & emphasizing child safety
- Child Development – Enhancing the parent-child relationship and reduce destructive behaviours.
- Community Involvement – Establishing connections to community resources that can be utilized after leaving the program.
- Daily Living Skills – Assist in creating daily routines and teach personal wellness in a Canadian cultural context.
- Reducing Isolation – Encourage developing healthy adult relationships as well as increasing involvement in community life.
- Emotional & Physical Well-Being – Finding ways to reduce stress within the family and promote good nutrition.
Parenting styles and knowledge vary from culture to culture which can make it difficult for Newcomer parents to find reliable information on how to raise their children in Canadian Society. Through this program, we provide support to parents at a pace they are comfortable with while utilizing their strengths and existing knowledge.
We acknowledge that each family is unique with different and complex needs, which is why we promise to meet families where they are at and build a personalized plan specific to their needs. Ultimately our goal is to promote happy, healthy families.
