Black Family Support Program

Black Family Support Program

 

Malton Neighbourhood Services is now offering a Parent Communication program for parents within the Black community in Peel.  Working from a culturally-informed perspective the program was developed for parents /caregivers to build on cultural identity, values and practices. Families will have a structured environment in which their younger children can enjoy  drop-in play-based learning experience while the parents are in group sessions.

 

One on one support will also be available to provide counselling/ advice to Black parents on how to support their youth to succeed in crucially important secondary school years. Parents/caregivers will have access to parenting for success support groups/workshops that will cover various topics related to parenting Black children/teens.

 

In addition, families will have an environment in which they will feel supported,  improve parenting skills, learn to better communicate with their children, and improve self-esteem. Parents will get to socialise and form network of supports which will reduce risks of social isolation.

 

The program is structured to offer:

  • Parent Groups
  • Individual counselling
  • Parenting programs
  • One-on-one counselling
  • Group counselling
  • Information/Referrals
  • Assistance with systems navigation
  • Advocacy
