We offer a variety of services, programs, workshops and seminars to enrich and strengthen families within Devon. For information, please contact the office at P: 780.987.8325 or FCSS@devon.ca
This program offers short-term support through one-on-one visits that assist individuals or families to make healthy skill-based improvements in their lives. It is available to children, teens and families in need. The program strives to enhance, strengthen and stabilize families who are experiencing life stress and/or change. Each family circumstance is unique. Family strengths, assets and action-planning will be utilized. Reasons for referrals may include separation or divorce, loss, communication/conflict, parenting strategies, budgeting and more.
Sometimes you might need some additional support to help you through a difficult or stressful time and a referral to mental health services doesn't seem appropriate. We can help eligible families to receive a limited number of subsidized counselling sessions.
Devon FCSS works together with Karunia Counselling and Family Counselling Centres. Subsidies are based on income. Broadly - for those who do not have children under 18 living at home, you may qualify if you earn less than $50,000 per household and for those with children under 18 at home this threshold increases to $75,000. For a subsidized referral please contact FCSS Coordinator at 780-987-8325. For more information on what each centre can offer: Family Counselling Centres or Karunia Counselling
