Family Support Program

What is the Family Support Program?

The family support program provides services to families with children (aged 0-7) who have or at risk for developmental delays. The family support program can provide information and establish connections to services that are available in the community.

How does the Family Support Program help your family?

The overall goal of this program is to help families gain skills, resources and to build their support network in the community.

The family support program can:

  • Provide information about programs and resources in the community

  • Connect you to other community programs/resources
  • Work through basic parenting strategies with you
  • Support you in advocating for your child’s needs
