Further Information (If there is room available – some directories have a word limit)
To realize this vision, Parent Support Services creates opportunities for parents and grandparents that foster independence and personal responsibility, and by creating cost-effective and comprehensive community based services in cooperation with public and private partners. The staff is dedicated to providing these services with respect, compassion, and accountability, and to championing the Canadian Charter of Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Parent Support Services supports families and their rights in this way because they value inclusion, social justice, and collaboration. They believe that, when we work together and learn from each other, these values can transform conflict into understanding; that understanding can transform hurt-filled households into healthy homes; and that healthy families can transform unjust societies into strong communities. That is why, at Parent Support Services, the goal is to build healthy communities, one family at a time.
