Every family has its challenges, yet for some the situation can be overwhelming. Through numerous funding and community partners, Chilliwack Community Services offers a variety of family programs to address challenges in family life and parenting. We work with parents/caregivers and their children, and any other person or community resource who can help to increase the safety and well-being of the children and help reach each family’s individual and collective goals.

Our funding partners are the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD), the Ministry of Justice, and the BC Law Foundation.
