Wrap Around Parent Guidance and Support

 

About the Program

WAPGS provides parent education and hands-on support in a welcoming, supportive and strength-based environment at no cost. Our goal is to empower our families to build and strengthen their relationships with their children and increase parent capacity, self-efficacy, confidence and resiliency.

We do this by providing evidence-based resources and programming that can be flexible and individually tailored to meet a variety of parenting needs, values and cultures.

 

Who We Serve

Our services are for families with children from 0-6 years old. We work with high risk families involved with Ministry of Child and Family Development (MCFD), at risk of MCFD involvement, or families who are seeking support and information on parenting. Our workers are dedicated to supporting families in their health and well-being in a holistic and respectful manner.

Families attend on site with their children for an initial 12-week period for 2 days per week, 5 hours per day. Afterwards, they can choose to extend for another 12 weeks, month to month or as needed. We also provide outreach services in the home to help transfer learned skills from the centre right into the home.

 

How We Can Support You

  • One-on-one and group support in a supportive and structured environment. Staff model, teach, guide and support parents as the parenting unfolds.
  • Parent education topics including, but not limited to: positive parenting strategies, understanding child development, anger/stress management, coping strategies, age appropriate strategies and discipline, community resources and so on.
  • Transportation, snacks and lunch are provided daily.

 

REFERRAL PROCESS

We accept referrals from MCFD, community agencies, as well as self-referrals. Referrals can be emailed, faxed or dropped off at the program. Download the referral form.
