Family Education Program provides ongoing groups throughout the year for parents and caregivers. Groups are intended to support healthy families and family relationships by offering psychoeducation and skills-building workshops. One-to-one support is offered to participants while in group. This program partners with multiple specialists in the community.
Our funding partner is the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD). Referrals are open to the community, self, and MCFD/FVACFSS.

We also offer the DARING Dads group, a year-round bi-weekly support group for Dad’s who want to build strong respectful attachment with their children.
