Range of Services
Family resource programs deliver a range of services guided by principles which focus on building supportive relationships, facilitating growth, respecting diversity, and furthering community development. Regardless of their diverse names, family resource programs all work from the belief that parents have the greatest influence on their children’s development, that all families deserve support, and that all families are resourceful. Although family resource programs offer programs that respond to the special needs of their individual communities, here are some programming components that are frequently made available:

  • Community development
  • Community outreach
  • Counseling and mediation
  • Drop-in programs for children and adults
  • Early learning and care programs
  • Educational upgrading
  • Emergency or respite child care
  • Employment assistance
  • Family literacy
  • Food and nutrition support
  • Parent and caregiver support
  • Parenting education
  • Peer contact and mutual support
  • Play and recreation
  • Pre-natal and post-natal support, including breastfeeding
  • Promotion of health and safety
  • Referral to other resources and services
  • Support for home-based child care providers
  • Toy, book and DVD lending
