Black Parent Support Program
Malton Neighbourhood Services’ Black Family Support Program is 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 socialize 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
- Assistance with systems navigation
- 2SLGBTQ+ Support
