Porch Chats

As part of the #KeepFamiliesSafe campaign, there are some upcoming porch chats that might be of interest to you.  Facilitated in different languages and exploring the impact of migration on family relationships, registration is required.

The Impact of Migration on Family Relationships:

In this porch chat, we will focus on how family relationships, mental health, and stress levels change after arrival to a new home and how that is connected to the Covid-19 situation. We will have a dialogue about cross-generational and cross-cultural conflict that can lead to family violence. We will present signs of abusive relationships and discuss what we can do as community members in helping families stay safely together. We will explore some tips to help adults and children to use their conflict resolution skills. We will elaborate on some services that are available to help families improve their relationships and maintain family peace. Our main goal is to keep families together and safe.
