The Sahara Family Support Program at Punjabi Community Health Services aims to improve family functioning through providing support to clients and their families. This is achieved through our one-to-one counselling and/or group programs, (i.e. Parenting program and Women’s group), and linking them to appropriate community/social resources. All services are offered in English, Punjabi, Hindi, and Urdu.
The Program Components: Supportive Counselling
The Supportive Counselling is an approach for individuals and/or their families to work with the support of a counsellor in setting and working towards their goals. The counsellors take a nonjudgmental and biased free approach to respect the needs of their clients. The counsellor and client work together to create a care plan, which is reviewed and revised to fit the client’s needs. Based on client’s needs, supportive counselling can be provided in the client’s house and/or community.
Sahara Family Support Program Goals:
Understand the goals and challenges of the South Asian Community;
Provide culturally and linguistically appropriate programs and supports to promote healthy and successful families; and
Develop equitable partnerships with community agencies to foster collaborations for healthy communities.
The services are provided at NO COST to the participants.
