The Resilience Project
The Family Centre is part of an exciting project that endeavors to meet the needs of children and youth with the goal of building relationships between caregivers, peers, and community. Funded by Lyle S. Hallman Foundation, the Building Resilience in Children, Families, and Community (BRCFC) will continue the work of the Child and Youth Resilience Project, and boost the community capacity for enhancing resilience in our children, families, and community through offering creative programming, collaboration of services, and support aiding children and families experiencing adversity.
As 1 of 10 partner organizations, Family & Children's Services of Waterloo Region offers resilience programs - for children ages 6 to 12 years - ranging from art and music classes to fun activities for the whole family. These programs take place at The Family Centre, as well as in the community.
Child & Youth Resilience Project
From 2014-2016, the Family Centre offered resilience programs under the project name Child & Youth Resilience Project (CYRP). Over the course of those two years, we learned a lot about resilience and how to foster it, and we think our community did as well. Read the full report at the link.
