Are you a single parent? Are you feeling overwhelmed?
Being a parent is hard work. If you find yourself without supports, it can seem even harder. Fatigue, stress, guilt, temper tantrums, 2:00 am feedings… loneliness… Sound familiar?
The Family Friend Program connects single parents with a screened, trained, competent family friend for friendship, support, mentoring and connection to community resources.
Referral is through community partners or you can self-refer. You are not alone!

Sponsor a Family
The Christmas Sponsorship program started in 2006. The main reason for the program was to help brighten the lives of families with financial difficulty during the Christmas season.
KCR’s Sponsor a Family Program is unique because it provides Christmas sponsorship to families that are already working with community supports. The families selected are working hard to rise above their circumstances and make the lives of their children better. We are familiar with the current supports the participating families are receiving, and we ensure that they are not taking part in any other Christmas hamper program.
