A world where all children and their families are nurtured, valued and safe.

Mission Statement

To protect the safety and wellbeing of children and promote the health of all families by partnering with those in a parenting role and their communities to build support, advocacy, education, research, and resources. 

Values & Guiding Principles

To realize our vision and mission we create opportunities for parents and grandparents that foster independence and personal responsibility, and by creating cost-effective and comprehensive community based services in cooperation with public and private partners. Our staff is dedicated to providing these services with respect, compassion, and accountability, and to championing the Canadian Charter of Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. 

We are committed to ensuring that our actions coincide with the values we embrace. We accept responsibility for our actions and are accountable to the parents, families and communities we serve.

We are committed to continual learning, which helps us to grow, be creative, and move towards new possibilities in support of our vision.

We honour, through our attitudes and behaviours, the inherent worth of individuals, families and communities and recognize that all are interconnected.

We listen and say what needs to be said in constructive ways. We seek to understand and address conflict directly and respectfully in order to support and strengthen people, families and community.

We foster a sense of safety and inclusion among those with whom we work. We enhance our ability to serve and enrich the experience by collaborating with other individuals and organizations. We appreciate and understand that together we are able to create something greater than what we can achieve alone in our effort to meet the needs of parents, families and communities.

We are committed to doing our best at all times. Our commitment is driven by our strong desire to prevent child abuse and support children, parents and families.

We serve from our hearts in ways that are meaningful to us in our effort to prevent child abuse and create a world where children and their families are nurtured, valued and safe.

We support families and their rights in this way because we value inclusion, social justice, and collaboration. And we believe that, when we work together and learn from each other, these values can transform conflict into understanding; that understanding can transform hurt-filled households into healthy homes; and that healthy families can transform unjust societies into strong communities. That is why, at PSS, our goal is to build healthy communities, one family at a time.
