Our Programs & Services

In an effort to minimize the risk of infection to Boundary Family Services Participants, Staff and the Community due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the following changes have been made to available services based on BC Ministry of Health and WorkSafe BC recommendations.

  • All drop-in groups have been suspended until further notice
  • People accessing the Glanville Centre will be asked to report any symptoms of illness or if they have travelled outside of the country recently
  • People accessing the Glanville Centre will be asked to use the provided hand sanitizer and to ensure physical distancing with staff and other people that are present 

Current participants can arrange for a telephone session or a web-based Zoom session with their worker.  Face to face appointments are available in locations that allow for physical distancing. Please discuss your options with your worker.

New participants and general inquiries can access Boundary Family Services.  We have staff available to respond to your questions in person, by phone or email and general voicemails and emails are checked regularly. 

Thank you for your cooperation in helping
to keep our community safe and healthy.

 

Boundary Family Services provides a wide variety of programs to meet the interests and needs of children, youth and families throughout the Boundary.

A Boundary Family Centre is located in each Elementary School from Christina Lake to Beaverdell with the main hub being the Glanville Family Centre in Grand Forks. Some programs require an appointment while other programs are open for drop in. Accessing most programs just requires that you contact us for an intake appointment or drop in time but some programs have specific guidelines and require a referral.

Please call or email us to discuss interest and eligibility.
