“We meet each family’s unique needs. There’s not one sort of approach or one product we offer. So we try to be creative and open” – Newcomer Support Coordinator
We want to see strong people, strong families, accessing their communities in healthy ways and living hopeful lives as Canadians. In essence, our goal is successful adaptation and integration.
We help families to:
- overcome barriers and identify their goals
- strengthen communication and problem solving skills
- reduce fears and anxieties
- access information and resources
- gain trust in services and supports
- increase knowledge of rights and responsibilities
- grow in confidence and independence
- develop a natural support system
- develop a better understanding of systems
“Family Dynamics offers the families we work with support, but they also offer us as staff support; so when we’re dealing with really complex families we can work together as a multi-disciplinary team. And I think that really adds a lot of value to the work that both organizations can do.” – Collateral organization
