Family Preservation Program

The Family Preservation Program provides a multi-pronged approach to supporting caregivers, youth, and their families, particularly youth aged 14-18 years old. The program comprises a Family Preservation Worker and Youth Worker who provide programming opportunities to aid in the development of skills and resiliency in caregivers, youth, and families.

The Family Preservation Worker and Youth Worker work collaboratively with the greater Family Resource Network to provide family programming opportunities. Referrals are received by self-referral, community, and Network partners. Activities offered by the Family Preservation Program include:

  • Parent/teen mediation
  • Caregiver/youth/family groups
  • Family activities
  • Community connection and referral
  • Cultural groups, including working with local Elders
  • Private mentorship sessions
  • Outreach support, when appropriate (i.e. family needs in-person assistance with referral matters, etc.)
Family Preservation programming is offered at flexible times, including evenings and weekends, to ensure that scheduling is not a barrier to those who need support.
