Safer Families

The goal of the Safer Families program is to respond in a helpful and supportive way to families who have experienced domestic violence.

Safer Families is a collaborative program run by Catholic Family Services of Peel Dufferin, the Peel Children’s Aid Society (PCAS), and Family Services of Peel.
  
How we are working together for safer families:

  • When the Children’s Aid Society learns that a child might be in need of protection because of conflict in their home, the Children’s Aid Society asks a family counsellor from Family Services of Peel or Catholic Family Services of Peel Dufferin to come with them to meet the family.
  • A family counsellor is a professional that families can talk to and who can help families make the changes they want.

The Children’s Aid worker meets with the family and asks questions to assess the safety of all members of the family. The role of the family counsellor is to offer support and be a resource. The Children’s Aid Society worker and the family counsellor will work together to find ways to keep everyone safe. The family can continue to see the family counsellor on their own, even if the Children’s Aid Society is not involved anymore. The Safer Families program is voluntary. Involvement can be ended at any time. If the Children’s Aid Society still has concerns about the safety of the children, they will stay involved without the family counsellor.
