Group Name: Etobicoke Brighter Future Coalition – Home Visiting (South Etobicoke)
Description: The Etobicoke Brighter Futures Coalition (EBFC) is a collaborative group of community partners that work together to plan, develop and deliver services and programs that will improve the health and well-being of vulnerable young children within the context of their families and their communities. Our vision is to work toward the creation of a seamless network of integrated services for all young children and their families.
Parent Support Workers visit families in their home to discuss issues and share resources related to raising healthy children. Families receive referrals and information about other community programs and services and assistance in accessing these services. Parent Support Workers can provide some escort service to appointments when necessary. This program is intended to provide support for parents with children age 0-6 who are in crisis, are living in conditions that put the child(ren) at risk for unhealthy development, and/or are experiencing stress. Newcomer parents, teen/youth parents and women who are expecting will also benefit from this program.
*** Interested parents or families living south of Bloor Street and between the Humber River and Etobicoke Creek are eligible for this program.
Where: Services and supports are offered through visits to clients’ homes or at mutually agreed up locations in the community.
