About Our Needs

Low barrier counselling and support in multiple languages for anyone. Moving Forward Family Services (MFFS) is a mentorship agency – providing counselling and social work practice opportunities to interns and new graduates beginning private practice. We receive funding for clinical supervision (supervisors who support interns and new graduates) and these supervisors in turn oversees an agency that has over 125 part-time counsellors, social workers and interns on post-secondary practicums, providing support to some of our most vulnerable communities. Community support also comes by way of donated space.

This unique model allows the agency to offer timely, affordable (including free for those with no income) counselling and support without being bound by restrictions based on gender, age, geography or presenting issues. It also allows MFFS to complement existing services (as opposed to competing with them for the same pools of traditional funding) thus reducing pressures on these services. MFFS is committed to building and contributing to healthy, healing communities.
