Finding help in the community

Encompass Recreation gives parents a break for a day while providing a fun-filled, well-supervised program for kids with severe challenges.

I think there are services out there for children with problems, but I don’t know where to begin to look.

Front Door has information about the services in our community for children experiencing social and emotional challenges, and theirfamilies.

Our child has had problems for years and has a number of mental health diagnoses. We’ve been through several programs. We know there will be rough times ahead again. Is there help for us?

The Intensive Support and Resource Co-ordination Program was created to assist with complex mental health issues. We know these kids and families need help over time to find the services they need and to feel the support of someone who understands.

As of January 2nd, 2014 Carizon (kidsLINK) will no longer be responsible for hosting the Child Care Special Needs Access Point (SNAP).  Beginning January 2, 2014 the Child Care Special Needs Access Point (SNAP) service and database will be supported by  the Region of Waterloo.  If you have a question or need to make a referral please contact the SNAP Coordinator, Michelle Mundy at 519-883-2022 or email
