WHY WE EXIST:

2 important truths that currently co-exist:

1. Approx. 2 million Canadian children are experiencing the effects of their parent's substance use,  which is compounded by the stigma of mental illness and addictions.

2. There are many parents with an addiction who have not had or continue to not have access to adequate supports to heal from their own past traumas and to choose sobriety.

WE HAVE A BOLD VISION TO ENSURE THAT EVERY CHILD WHO HAS BEEN IMPACTED BY THEIR PARENT'S SUBSTANCE USE  ALONG WITH SOCIETY'S STIGMA OF ADDICTIONS IS SUPPORTED TO USE THEIR RESILIENCE TO HEAL.

For impacted individuals

Resources for individuals impacted by a parents current/past substance use.

For parents: Healing our Relationships

Resources for parents who are dependant on their substance use or who have had an addiction.

For the frontline

Empowering professionals to be active participants in dismantling stigma and supporting  a families healing.
