Our Family Support Program provides in-home support to families in need.
We provide practical assistance with child care, household management and parenting as well as emotional support and encouragement to families during difficult times.
You may qualify for service if your family is experiencing an illness or hospitalization, struggles with parenting and child behaviour, has had a multiple birth or if you are feeling overwhelmed and having difficulty coping.
The goals of the program are to:
- Provide hands-on, practical support so that a family can continue to function during difficult times e.g. laundry, meals, child care
- Strengthen parent/child relationships
- Assist families to promote the physical, cognitive, social and emotional development of their children
We work with you to help strengthen the special connection of the parent-child relationship. You and your Family Support Coordinator will develop a plan for service based on your family’s goals and needs. A Family Support Worker will then be placed in your home to help you meet these goals. While receiving this service, your Coordinator will monitor the placement to ensure that it is meeting your family’s needs. She will offer you professional support and guidance and may refer you to other services in the community.
“Family Dynamics has been an enormous blessing to our family and has provided stability during a very tumultuous time. The Family Support Worker and Coordinator are caring and delightful, and a pleasure to work with.”— anonymous client
