Family Support Institute

The Family Support Institute of BC (FSI) is a provincial not for profit society committed to supporting families who have a family member with a disability. FSI is unique in Canada and the only grassroots family-to-family organization with a broad volunteer base. FSI supports and services are free to any family.

FSI’S response to COVID-19
During these uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to reassure you that FSI has remained open and fully functional. Our volunteer Resource Parents are engaged and willing to support you via telephone, email, text or online video meetings.

We know that at this time, isolation is a risk and we are doing all we can to ensure that families stay connected. We understand that many families are feeling high levels of stress and anxiety and may benefit from peer to peer support. If you wish to connect with others in your community or across the province of BC, please join an online video call* .

* We use zoom for online video call. If you’re new to Zoom, please click here to see the Zoom instructions.
