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.
