The systemic barriers surrounding parental substance use stigma, mental health challenges and poverty make it difficult for parents and their children to safely reach out for help. At FASC we empower youth and parents as advocates in their lives and communities as a source of protection from systemic and structural harm.
As a collective, our programs, training, and advocacy initiatives are focused on removing stigma and barriers that prevent youth and parents from asking for help while strengthening the ecosystem of support for all families.
The Family Advocacy Support Centre meets a need in the community that is otherwise missing. Their education sessions, community consultations have been incredibly valuable to me and the families with child welfare involvement.
