Family Services of Greater Vancouver

Social Service


Family Services of Greater Vancouver is a non-profit working to support and empower individuals, families, and communities.

We offer programs and services designed to help people develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence to create positive change in their lives. Our staff – including experienced counsellors and support workers – operates from an evidence-based, trauma-informed lens to meet people where they are and get them where they want to be.

Our Impact

Uniting the web of supports and programs we offer clients, we have four impact areas.

We nurture healthy families.
When life’s challenges arise, FSGV is here to provide crisis support, specialized counselling, resource referral, parent education, support groups and more to help families of all kinds thrive.

We support marginalized youth.
When crisis happens to young people, timely support makes a difference today that lasts for a lifetime – carrying forward for generations to come. We have a collection of programs and sites for unhoused youth, where our focus is on meeting their basic needs, providing housing supports, and working on long-term goals at their own pace.

We foster inclusive communities.
Our programs give people safe and equitable spaces for education and opportunity to be connected and engaged community members, regardless of their background.

We empower people.
FSGV provides anti-oppressive, trauma-informed support for victims and survivors, resource referral, counselling, help navigating the criminal justice system, community education, and more.

How your gift will be used

Your gift will be used in four areas:

Family Supports

From family preservation and parent education groups to parent-teen mediation and early childhood community consultants, your legacy will have a multi-generational impact..

Trauma Counselling

Our Trauma Counselling programs have waitlists full of people looking to build the lives they want. They choose our programs because they’re uniquely client-centered and we offer longer term support than similar organizations. Your legacy will allow us to eliminate our waitlists as well as provide childcare to clients who need it during their sessions.

Victim Services

Our Victim Support Workers are working with folks in the highest risk cases. With your gift, we can get more support to survivors of trafficking, domestic violence, and elder abuse.

Youth Services

Image trying to plan for your future when you don’t even know where your next meal is coming from. This is the reality for the marginalized youth we serve; they’re just trying to survive. To pull them out of crisis mode, we start by meeting their basic needs. Your gift can ensure we’re here to give homeless youth a place to eat, shower, do laundry, and, when they’re ready, to plan their future.
