CAFCL is a community focused organization providing services to people to develop skills and build quality of life.
This program is helping to strengthen families who have children with special health and/or developmental concerns through a variety of opportunities. The Family Support Program offers families encouragement and support to deal with their experiences and assists families in accessing community programs.
One to One Support
CAFCL offers one to one personal support to families by listening and providing encouragement and support with transition planning, funding, advocacy, and other areas of importance to the family. This support is provided in a way that best meets the family’s unique circumstances (phone, email, personal contact etc).
A variety of educational events are offered periodically throughout the year for families and professionals who work with children with special health and developmental concerns. The sessions also offer opportunities for families to connect with other families and gain more information.
“I have seen this family support program change the trajectory of families. It is a true blessing to be part of a program that works with complex family needs and can take the time to truly connect and support families through what is often a very scary and unpredictable time in their life. Supporting families to navigate through their personal story and accomplish their goals feels like victory."
Denise Robbins, Family Support Coordinator
