What We Do
The Jewish Family Centre offers a vast variety of programs and opportunities to assist families, individuals and children in crisis. Please scroll down to see our list of programs below. If you are interested in any of these programs and would like more information, please contact us.
Back to School Sponsorship
Children can be affected by low self-esteem, as they cannot afford to buy uniforms, books and other school supplies. This program provides financial support towards those back to school expenses, enablin children to have a positive start to their school year.
Children from unstable families can feel vulnerable as sometimes they are unsupervised and have no structure to their school holidays. This program provides financial assistance so they can enjoy their leisure time in a positive and caring environment.
Family Conflict Resolution
The pressures of life can create major family conflict, which if not intervened early can cause the collapse of the entire family. This program facilitates counselling sessions and mediation to restore the peace in the family as quickly as possible.
The breakdown of family relationships are a major concern especially when children are involved. This program provides counselling and referrals to professionals. There is also financial assistance towards paying for these services when necessary.
Pesach & Rosh Hashanah Parcels
Jewish festivals can become a burden instead of joy for families of low income. We provide financial assistance and food parcels, so they can enjoy Yom Tov.
