Boundary Family Services is a CARF Accredited agency. Our services are provided by professionally trained staff in a respectful and confidential manner.

All services are provided FREE of charge thanks to our funders and the generous support of private donors.

Family Support Services

Services are provided to families experiencing personal difficulties, life transitions and family crises with a focus on keeping children safe. We engage and link families to the assistance that they require, provide support and teach life, safety and parenting skills.

This program provides short-term, outcome-focused assistance to families that are experiencing difficulties with parent-adolescent conflict. The focus of the program is to avoid family breakdown and to encourage positive relationships through the transition of youth from adolescence into adulthood.

Aboriginal Family Support

Family support services are provided for children, youth and families of Aboriginal ancestry, in a culturally relevant manner.

Baby’s Best Chance

A program for pregnant women that provides nutrition, lifestyle, parent education, emotional support and fun groups to meet other pregnant women and families with young children. Nutritious lunch is provided.

Community Action Program for Children (CAPC)

Provides a group program to offer support, information and education for parents of children birth to 6 years.

Parenting Programs

Group sessions which are focused on developing communication, coping and parenting skills that help parents and caregivers to understand and respond to their child’s behavior during every stage of a child’s development from infant to teen.

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 Family Centres will be asked to report any symptoms of illness or if they have travelled outside of the country recently
  • People accessing the Family Centres will be required to wear a mask, 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.
