Integrated Family Development Service (Ages: 5-19yrs and Parents)

The Integrated Family Development Program is a free voluntary service that facilitates counseling, support, parent education, conflict resolution, and community connections for children, youth and their families to increase healthy family functioning and develop positive life skills.
The program’s role in the community is preventive in nature, aiming to stop the escalation of problems to a point where more intrusive interventions might be required. The service employs interventions such as outreach, parent-teen mediation, solution-oriented counseling strategies, connection to community resources and referrals, and enhancement of parenting and life skills.

The Sexual Abuse Intervention Program (SAIP)

The Sexual Abuse Intervention Program provides counselling, support and education to children aged 5-19 and their families who have been affected by sexual abuse. Counsellors also provide information and education regarding healthy sexuality and abuse prevention and protection to parents and community service providers.
