WJS Canada family support programs emphasize building relationships to enhance the family’s strengths and achieve goals that address their needs for support with children and youth with developmental disabilities. These services are individualized and based on the family’s belief that their own internal resources can be strengthened and that other helpful skills can be developed. Our conviction is that the most sustainable change will occur when families are fully engaged in the process and supported by members of their community. WJS family support accesses and connects to appropriate community resources that become a part of their network of support.
