Agency: Family Services of York Region
Vision: A leader in building connected communities, fostering healthy relationships and resilience in people.
Mission: A responsive, caring organization offering counselling and outreach support for all to achieve improved well-being and community connections.
We provide counselling and community support services to help individuals, couples, families and groups manage their daily lives.
We believe in family in all its diversity – as the smallest democracy at the heart of society (United Nations Year of the Family, 1994). We recognize family as consisting of the traditional nuclear family (2 parents and children), extended family, blended or re-combined family, childless family, sole-parent family, common-law marriage or cohabitating partners, same sex partners. As an agency we are committed to be a resource to families.
