Family Workers

The Family Worker Program encompasses two staff who are there to help with a broad range of supports and community navigation. We help navigate social services, assist in filling out forms and support individuals and families who are experiencing challenges relating to poverty, alcoholism, drug abuse, spousal/child abuse and cross cultural issues. 

Purpose

Our goal is to raise the standard of life for everyone who walks through our doors by helping improve their mental and spiritual state, instilling the desire to achieve self-sufficiency and to help them take pride in themselves and their community

Objectives

  • Provide guidance and counselling to clients
  • Initiate contact and maintain an information system with other organizations and agencies
