Family Services Program
Family Services provides an intensive support service to families whose children have been identified as at risk. Family Services serves as an alternative to removing children from their families or when children were already removed but there is a plan for them to return to their home.
Our Family Services are located in South Surrey and White Rock and include:
- Family Development Response: Family Development Response provides services to families where there is a moderate level of risk to the children based on the MCFD’s assessment and determined that FDR is the most appropriate intervention.
- Family Therapy: Family Therapy provides a variety of specialized clinical services to children and families including individual, family, relationship and child therapy. The therapeutic process builds on an attachment based perspective to enhance relationships by increasing empathy and mindfulness while encouraging individuals to gain awareness to their own strength. Trauma counselling is offered through individual or group therapy.
- Visitation and Access: When children have been removed we provide a safe environment for parent child visits, and often provide parenting support with the goal of returning children to their family.
- Supports to Children and youth and their families, where mental health conditions have been identified. This can take the form of providing therapy (both group and individual) and outreach community support. Services can be provided to the children directly and the entire family.
Referrals are through Ministry for Child and Family Development only.
