COVID-19

If you are feeling isolated and would like to connect with others during this uncertain time with the COVID-19 pandemic, please join an online video chat below with others in your community or across the province of BC. This peer to peer family support is an opportunity for live video contact where you can share, listen, learn, and connect with families facing similar challenges, fears and questions.  Come learn what others are doing at this time to creatively manage care for their loved ones, work from home, facilitate online schooling, safely support their communities, reduce their stress, appease their children, stay healthy and more… and, all  from home!

 Stay home. Stay healthy. Stay connected. Stay supported.

 
Families can:
• Call us directly at 604-540-8374 or toll free at 1-800-441-5403
• Via on-line request at https://familysupportbc.com/contact/#form through the general contact form
