Family Resource Program

Family resource programs are Canadian community-based organizations that support families in a variety of ways such as family resource centres, family places, family centres, and neighbourhood houses. They can also be linked to schools, community centres, child care programs, women's centres, and native friendship centres. This includes programs such as Ontario Early Years and military-funded family centres. They are generally grassroots organizations that aim to be responsive to local issues.

Similar organizations or programs may exist in other countries under similar or different names.

Famous quotes containing the words program, family and/or resource:

    Along the highway, all but lost among blatant neon lights flashing ‘Whiskey’ and ‘Dance and Dine,’ are crudely daubed warnings erected by itinerant evangelists, announcing that ‘Jesus is soon coming,’ or exhorting the traveler to ‘prepare to meet thy God.’
    —For the State of Florida, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Civilization, for every advantage she imparts, holds a hundred evils in reserve;Mthe heart burnings, the jealousies, the social rivalries, the family dissensions, and the thousand self-inflicted discomforts of refined life, which make up in units the swelling aggregate of human misery.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Helping children at a level of genuine intellectual inquiry takes imagination on the part of the adult. Even more, it takes the courage to become a resource in unfamiliar areas of knowledge and in ones for which one has no taste. But parents, no less than teachers, must respect a child’s mind and not exploit it for their own vanity or ambition, or to soothe their own anxiety.
    Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)
