Our Operational Principles
We work towards total healing, spirit and body.
Happiness of individuals is the happiness of families and societies
Openness of mind is pivotal in our operation
Laugher is medicinal, we create the atmosphere to let it out
Everyone is born a leader, you just have to be ready to take the role
Never underestimate how far you can go when you stretch
Everyone has the right to their opinion of you but YOURS matter most
Sense of who you REALLY are is important to your achievement
Services provided are based on your STRENGTHS and not your deficits.
We provide couples’ counselling for couples that are interested in working on their relationships. We also provide counselling for families involved in domestic violence to help them make the right decisions that will ensure their safety and that of their family members. Individual Counselling is offered on individual basis to help people reach their potentials.
Our agency provides group services for children, youth, adults and families from diverse cultural background. Our group services include: “Mothers’ Peace Forum”(MPF), where mothers meet to share their parenting challenges and strengths as well as learn parenting skills from others. “Fathers’ Peace Forum (FPF)” is another fantastic group for fathers learning from fathers. “The Giant in Me” (TGM) is where we help youth reach their potentials and pursue their goals.
We help immigrants struggling with settlement on career information, goal setting and goal attainment. We also help in providing emergency respite to families with children and provide food for our clients through our “Kitchen Service”
