Vision

Strong Individuals Strong Families Strong Communities

Mission

To inspire hope, support healthy development, strengthen wellbeing and resiliency by connecting individuals and families to services, supports and resources in our communities.

How we help

Community Links offers support through four core service areas with Outreach being a key component of each:

- Community Engagement Services – community partnerships, school-based programming, volunteer opportunities;

- Counselling Services – Drop-In, Regular (ages 6 years +) and Family Violence;

- Family Resource Services – Early Childhood Development, Family Day Home Program and parenting education and support; and

- Support Services – Intake (Information and Referral) and Seniors Supports.

Community Links offers a variety of services and programs that address many needs and issues within the communities it serves. Community members that are served can be facing one or multiple issues related to: basic needs (housing, clothing, food, household items, medication, transportation or recreation), financial and/or emotional strain, family dynamics, employment issues, bullying/family violence, special needs, and legal issues. Through advocacy and support, Community members are connected to our programming or with other programs/services/resources that build on their abilities to address needs and growth. Community members can also receive counselling and assistance with

connecting to childcare options, parenting and volunteer opportunities. The agency also works collaboratively with community members and partners to address identified gaps in service delivery or projects that promote healthy growth and development.

As a Family Resource Network Hub and Spoke, Community Links provides additional programs and services with a focus on families with children/youth 0 – 18 years of age, as well as connections to the programming offered by our Spoke partners – Big Brothers Big Sisters and Closer to Home.
