Strengthening Families

Improved home life

Strengthening Families is a FREE program of weekly workshops for parents and their children. We offer workshops for children 6-11 years of age and children 10 – 14 years of age.

Through videos, role-playing, discussions, learning games and family projects, this program improves family communications and increases positive parenting practices, school performance and parent-child attachment.

Each session includes a complimentary meal, childminding for younger siblings and a gift to take home.

This program is funded by the Province of British Columbia

“I’ve learned how to be better organized in my household.”

“Now my daughter looks me in the face, doesn’t argue and does what she’s asked. There’s more speaking and hugging now than before.”
