The Parent Resource Centre’s Parent Support Services aim to provide client-centered, trauma-informed parenting support services with minimal access barriers.


Parent Support Services currently provides services to parents with children in transition. These children may be those involved with the Children’s Aid Society, those having difficulty functioning in mainstream schooling, those being re-integrated into their family of origin after prolonged separation or those with mental health concerns on their journey to wellness. Services are available to parents with children between the ages of 0 and 18 years of age.   


Support and advocacy are provided regarding:

  • Parenting stressors and supports
  • Child development and behaviour guidance
  • Positive parenting
  • Safety, nutrition and providing basic needs for children
  • Communicating with children
  • Referrals to community based parent-child resources and services
  • Working with the Children’s Aid Society
  • Mandated Parenting courses
  • And other relevant topics based on the clients’ needs
