Kamloops Family Resources Society is a non-profit society and registered Canadian charity. Our vision is a community where families have the support and personal capacity to overcome life’s challenges and reach their desired potential. At our Family Tree Family Centre, families enjoy a warm and respectful environment where they find support in each other, in visiting professionals, and in the caring staff who understand how to connect people with the help they need.
At our drop in program families can find healthy food, peer-based social support, connections to professional services, clothing and baby equipment, a family health library, health and parenting workshops, children’s circle time and other special events and activities.
Some of our programs address the often hidden issue of Mothers struggling with substance use issues. We believe that the best way to stay clean and sober is to help others stay clean and sober. Our mothers for recovery support group provides a safe, non-judgmental, nurturing environment where moms can heal and share. We build trust, relationships, and new lives for those who have been or are pregnant and seek recovery from substance use.
Our mothers for recovery mentorship program connects mentees (moms new to recovery) with mentors (moms with at least one year clean and sober). Mentors and mentees find support in each other and in a variety of educational sessions and professional services.
