Surrey family preservation program 

An intensive and short-term service designed to improve family safety and cohesion.

We believe that children and families thrive best in a strengths-based environment. Families are at the centre of services and supports are collaborative, culturally sensitive, individualized and flexible. We are trauma-informed and attachment based.

What we do

The program provides a wide array of services based on the family’s needs, and includes counselling; communication skills; parenting; anger management; advocating, recommendations and referrals. Services are intensive and short term. The majority of services take place in the family home and community.

You can expect

  • An understanding of your family’s strengths and how to build on them.

  • An understanding of your family’s needs and how to effectively support you for success.

  • Individualized and family-centred planning.

  • Interventions that help to strengthen families, increase resilience to adversity and stress, and promote healthy child development.
