Vol.3, Spring 2010

Perspectives in Family Support is FRP Canada's occasional journal. It draws on scholarship that is relevant for practice and policy in the field of family support. We believe the articles will be of interest to a wide range of readers, including family support practitioners, policy makers, researchers, funders of community-based programs and others with an interest in the well-being of children and families in Canada.

Perspectives vol. 3 Spring 2010

This volume of Perspectives focuses on welcoming immigrant families into our communities and recognizing the challenges that family resource programs face in answering the needs of newcomer families.
