The Community Outreach Program, funded by the Region of Waterloo and administered by the House of Friendship, is committed to supporting families with children who are experiencing low-income. This community based program is designed to assist families in finding and accessing community supports. The Family Outreach Worker (FOW) is able to link eligible families to resources for employment and education, food resources and assistance, recreation for your children, resources and information around shelter, childcare and children’s equipment, transportation to attend appointments and meeting, clothing, and counselling. For needs where there are no existing programs to provide assistance the FOW may be able to provide some direct support through the program.
