“We all begin our parenting journey from unique beginnings, but we tend to all agree that becoming a parent is the most difficult job we have ever had. In Family Services, we know that parents and family are the most important people in a child’s life. Our job is, for a time, to provide support, advocacy and share knowledge with families and caregivers in their journey of raising a child. Our goal is for families to be confident, involved, successful and empowered as parents and caregivers”. ~ Jane Gladman, Family Services Department Head

“A child, or a youth, and even the parent, ultimately enjoys the satisfaction of success when something such as a seemingly simple adjustment is made to the height of a door handle. Simplifying the every day activities for a child is imperative to opening a world of accessibility and accomplishment”. ~ Kirstie Glasgow, Occupational Therapy & Autism Department Head
