Family and Children's Services is the local child welfare agency for the Waterloo Region. The agency's services are mandated under The Child and Family Services Act. Our vision is a community where children can grow up feeling safe, healthy and loved. In the fall of 2005, Family and Children's Services of the Waterloo Region formed a family violence team. The team was developed in order to provide a comprehensive range of services to children, mothers and fathers, where domestic violence is the primary reason for a child welfare response. The goal of service is to increase child safety and well-being. The team is comprised of intake workers, family service workers and counsellors. The family violence team actively seeks participation from parents in providing safety and security for their children. The team values a collaborative service approach to working with families and other service agencies who may be involved with them.
