The IRP provides short-term counselling for families to improve their quality of family life and relationships, enabling individuals to live together harmoniously.

Program Features

The Immediate Response Program has been developed to help families come up with solutions to problems that will enable them to live together successfully. IRP focuses on improving the interactions and communication between family members. The program’s objective is to support everyone in the family by dealing with concerns promptly and in a way that encourages the family to be connected to their community.

What we do:

  • Provide support to youth and their families when and where needed
  • Help family members understand each other and work through difficult feelings in a safe space.
  • Help make connections to other resources in the community
  • Help participants not feel alone or isolated
  • Help participants learn how to practice a safe and healthy lifestyle
  • Help increase knowledge of personal strengths, needs and abilities
