At Family Services of Greater Vancouver, we’ve been helping people in crisis since 1928.
As a non-profit we help people develop skills and knowledge, and empower our neighbours to create positive change in their lives. More than 420 staff, including expert counsellors and support workers, help youth experiencing homelessness, families and children impacted by trauma, victims of domestic violence, and other vulnerable people from an evidence-based, trauma-informed lens — all while providing compassionate, client-centered care.
Through thoughtful partnerships and an approach that harnesses best practices in harm reduction and preventative care, we believe in building a brighter future for all British Columbians.
