Family Services

Empower Simcoe has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the Youth Retreat 2020 and postpone Barrie (W.E.B.) on Wednesdays, Orillia (Get O.U.T.) on Thursdays and the current semester of the Let’s Socialize program until further notice. The decision to cancel and postpone is a preventative measure regarding COVID-19 to reduce the risk of spreading infection to people and families we support, employees and volunteers. We have compiled a list of helpful resources for Children, Youth and their Families that you can access below.

The Family Services Department provides support and services to children, youth, adults and their families. Person-Centered and Family-Centered approaches are used within service delivery to allow program staff, people supported and their families to understand and realize Personal Outcome Measures and strive for Person-Centered Excellence.
