Family Access Support Worker - Seasonal / Saisonnier

Organization Overview:

Family and Children's Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington

Website Icon

Industry Sector: Social Services/Education / Services sociaux/ Éducation

Organization Description:

Children Growing Up in Families.

We are committed to trying to keep families in crisis together. Through our support, and linking the family with other community services, the vast majority of the children we see stay in their homes with their parents. When that can’t happen, we look for another family to care for them. This could be the child’s extended family. Or, if that option is not available, a foster family. We make an effort to reunite children with their parents if possible. And in our vision, if a child has to be permanently separated from their parents, then we will do the best we can to find them a permanent home and family through adoption or long-term foster care. Every child in our care will experience a safe and nurturing family. That’s what our vision means.
