Family Support

we're here for you.

Whether you just need a listening ear, some practical day-to-day help, or an unexpected crisis has come up, we are here. Our family support workers can walk beside you in helping you achieve your goals. Kaxla Society acknowledges the strength and resilience that parents and families hold, and provides services based on your needs and what you want for your family. Our support services at Kaxla are voluntary, meaning that you chose the type of support you receive and the length of time you would like it for.

Sometimes the families we support are involved with the Ministry of Children and Families (MCFD). In these times, we can offer assistance in helping you understand the process, supporting you during meetings, and helping you to meet any goals that have been outlined by MCFD in regards to your children and family.

Extended Family Plans

Sometimes it's not possible for a child to live with their parents. Under an Extended Family Plan (EFP) a child is able to live with a family member and receive services and financial support as needed.

Other Support/Programs

For parents that are looking for help with challenging behaviours or just looking to meet others and share experiences, our family support workers offer groups, programs and one-one support. Contact us to inquire about specific options.
