Intensive Family Preservation (IFP)

Our Participants

  • Must be willing to participate in the IFP Program. Participation from at least one parent/ care giver is voluntary, from the program’s perspective.
  • Are not abusing or under the influence of illegal substances or alcohol.

Our Services

  • Assess and resolve concerns regarding safety and basic needs that may prevent proper care of the child in his/her home.
  • Enhance and strengthen family functioning and relationships
  • Increase parent’s knowledge and use of effective problem solving and parenting skills
  • Connect families to appropriate community resources

Our Referral Process

  • Referrals are made through the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD).
  • A Social Worker will contact the IFP Program to discuss the appropriateness of the referral, and to determine if there is available space in the program.
  • Service will begin when an IFP worker receives a referral from the Ministry. IFP will contact the participant directly to arrange home visitation.
