Volunteer Family Connect (VFC)

Volunteer Family Connect is a volunteer home visiting program. This service works by linking trained volunteers with a parent who has identified as needing extra support. Volunteers can help parents adjust to a new baby, with multiple children, assist parents to overcome feelings of isolation and frustration, or other issues that can overwhelm mums and dads.
