Do you want to make a positive impact on adoptive and permanency families? Do you have a great sense of humour and enjoy having fun while working? Are you detail oriented, with a positive outlook? If so, we want to hear from you! Our Family Services program ensures that adoptive and permanency families are strong and supported. We provide information, education, connections, and support at all stages, and respond to the evolving needs of our community. We need you to help improve, adapt, and expand these services.
As a PASS counsellor, you will work with families in their homes in 12 sessions over 24-30 weeks. You will follow a structured program focused on training and supporting parents in therapeutic play (a non-directive style of interacting with toys as tools for communication). In addition, you will provide parents with appropriate coaching and counselling in areas related to attachment, grief and loss, special needs, trauma and child brain development.
At the Adoptive Families Association of BC, we believe that children grow best in families. Our Child Specific Recruitment program finds loving, permanent homes for some of the hardest-to-place children and youth in government care in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. We explore family connections, work in collaboration with government agencies, and help children and youth understand the importance of adoption and permanency. This program is based on the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids (WWK) program of the Dave Thomas Foundation of Canada.
We love our volunteers!
