Family Counselling is offered at the Elmwood Community Resource Centre by Social Workers for all ages and all cultures.

The family counselling programs are intended to strengthen families and youth who have experienced domestic violence and abuse, trauma through individual or family therapy.

The objectives of the programs are to promote a violence-free environment through personal growth and self-reliance for adults, children, and families so that they can attain their full potential. In addition, the program aims at providing access to resources and referrals to other government stakeholders, and community-based organizations.

Empowering family with healthy coping tools enhances the healthy development of children youth at risk when early experiences at home at school do not provide adequate care, secure relationships, and educational experiences needed to build social and learning skills.

The programs include crisis and long-term individual counselling sessions, Psycho-educational group workshop sessions, trauma therapy, and mental wellness.
