Our vision is healthy families contributing to a strong community.

How You Can Help
Mental health concerns have increased significantly during the Covid-19 pandemic and have also created stress on relationships. Family Service Saskatoon is urgently seeking additional funding to assist in the establishment of walk-in counselling locations in key points throughout Saskatoon and surrounding communities. The locations provide complimentary one-hour counselling sessions that address the immediate concerns and needs of the individual and assist with identification of community services and supports to provide additional support as required.
Due to Covid-19, our volunteer program is on hold. When it is safe, we will be taking volunteers again.
