Family situations are significantly more complex than 10 years ago. Multiple issues around poverty, nutrition, mental illness and addictions often lead to anger, frustration and hopelessness. Basic needs for children may be compromised.
Our dedicated family support workers are trained to walk alongside parents and their children, as guides and support towards growing healthy families.
In addition, our family therapist provides counselling focusing on family of origin issues, childhood trauma, depression, unresolved grief and dysfunctional family dynamics.
Chilliwack Community Services provides in-home crisis intervention and support to families, primarily referred by the Ministry of Child and Family Development (MCFD).
It is important to note that there is a waitlist (6–8 weeks) unless your family is currently working with MCFD.
