Better Together at The Family Centre

Imagine a place where community groups and organizations work cooperatively to help children and families learn, share, and connect with others. The Family Centre is a very special place that does all that and more. It provides a welcoming, safe environment that focuses on the positive and helps build the strengths, wellness, and resiliency of children, youth, and families in our community.

The Family Centre is a bright and colourful facility owned and operated by Family and Children’s Services of the Waterloo Region. The Family Centre works with our community in a number of ways:

  • In-House Partners: There are a number of organizations that run their services, supports, and programs out of our centre
  • Community Partners: We work with a number of community organizations to bring important programs into The Family Centre
  • Community Rentals: We have a variety of spaces - from 4 to 250 capacity - that we rent to community groups and organizations
  • Special Projects: The Family Centre is home to a number of innovative projects to support children, youth, and families
