PRC’s Family Resilience Program includes one-on-one In-Home Support Services, reserved for clients who face significant economic and social barriers within the following service area:
In-Home Support Services include teaching tools that are appropriate for individual clients, based on current best practices and research. Services are provided in an environment where the parent feels most comfortable (e.g., home, coffee shop, PRC, community space, shelter). Visits occur based on the individual needs of the family (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly). Goals are determined by parents. Services are generally offered for 3 to 6 months (though can be extended, based on family needs).
Our In-Home Support Team is able to provide a variety of parenting supports including (though not limited to):
- practical parenting support
- short-term situational counselling (as it relates to parenting stressors)
- assistance with system navigation
- advocacy/collaboration with other service providers (this may include accompanying clients to appointments with other providers)
- education on topics relevant to individual client circumstances, such as:
- behaviour guidance
- child development
- building healthy relationships between parents and children
- parental stress and self-care
- health and safety
- establishing rules and routines
Parents increase their knowledge, skills and confidence in raising children, including those with challenging behaviours, developmental delays, and/or mental health diagnoses. Parents will learn to balance their own needs so that they can meet the needs of their children.
