About our Family Centre
If you are new to Canada, there are many services to support you and your children. MOSAIC’s Family Centre has information and programs on parenting and childhood development.
The Family Centre runs programs for families. We also help our clients find meaningful volunteer opportunities in the community, as well provide outreach services in the community to help families navigate and locate other supports.
When families first attend the Family Centre, they will enter into our “Welcoming Room.” Here they will be able to register and have their needs assessed. They will be fully informed of the different services and programs at the centre and they will be made to feel very welcome, safe and comfortable.
Staff members have language capacity in Amharic (አማርኛ), Arabic (عربي), Dari (دری), English, Farsi (فارسی), Korean (한국어), Mandarin (中文), Pashto (پښتو), Spanish (Español), Tigringa (ትግርኛ) and Urdu (اُردو).
