Family Development Centre


CUPS Family Development Centre provides education and support for at-risk pregnant women and families and their children (prenatal to six years) who are impacted by poverty. The Centre seeks to help children reach their full potential by supporting families in building strong and stable foundations for their child’s development. The Centre’s programs seek to reduce the risk of poverty being transmitted to the next generation and to eliminate poor parenting practices, child neglect and maltreatment. To achieve this, the Centre offers intensive parent education, goal setting, case management, group classes, home visits, psychological support and recreational opportunities.


The Centre’s main focus is the Nurturing Parenting Program. This evidence-based family centered program is designed to build nurturing parenting skills as an alternative to negative and neglectful parenting practices. In this pursuit, parents examine the impact of their family histories, how their parenting will impact their children and are empowered to take responsibility for their own lives.


To further enhance the benefit to families, CUPS has introduced the Supporting Fathers Initiative to highlight the importance of fathers in the family and in child development and to strengthen parental and family relationships.
