We provide Family Preservation and Reunification services, Clinical Counselling and Play Therapy, Supervised Visitation, and numerous community based programs to families who may be dealing with issues that make parenting more challenging, such as mental health issues, addictions, poverty, newcomer status, abuse, trauma, or divorce. As one of the first organizations to receive accreditation standing with the Counsel on Accreditation (COA), we are now in our 32nd year of service, with offices in Vancouver, the North Shore, the Tri-Cities and Maple Ridge. Their mandate states that “Westcoast Family Centres contribute to the healthy development of children by providing services to strengthen the relationship between children and families and between families and their communities”.
