Uganda Muslim Association Of Canada
Family and Seniors Support Program
Achieving Their Dreams.
Family support program is at the heart of our work in helping families achieve goals they define for themselves on their pathway to the Canadian Dream. Every family living in the UMAC community has access to a dedicated team of supportive services through Family Success Planning, most notably their Family Success Coach. Families work with their Success Team to develop an individualised Family Success Plan that helps them identify focus areas for achieving the goals such as: career training and workforce development, housing security, financial literacy, health, overall wellness, childcare and transportation.
Family Support Services
Our families show up every day ready to overcome and conquer adversity. Family Success Planning not only acknowledges their resilience, but empowers them by connecting them to tools that will aid them in moving forward. These tools include Parent Cafes and community circles that allow parents to speak candidly about what they experience on a daily basis.
Our team provides knowledge specific to educating our parents on best practices for children, as well as exposure to resources that will assist them in their path to self sufficiency.
Oftentimes our families feel like they’re alone in their trauma. Connecting them with other families who are on a similar path of progression can encourage them and help them to lean on each other. Family Success Planning creates opportunities for our families to connect and build true community with each other.
