Family Services

Temcare’s FAMILY SERVICES program provides various levels of support for parents and/or their children, including:

  • Individual casework for parents.
  • A monthly support group for women.
  • Play Therapy for children.

Individual casework is provided by experienced and professionally trained welfare staff and seeks to address parenting difficulties and those factors that contribute to stress and breakdown within the family unit. Staff members work closely with professional networks and supportive local churches to provide families with stability, safety and care.

Within a supportive environment and from a Christian perspective, a monthly support group [‘Women of Hope’] explores important personal and parenting issues that impact on women.

Play Therapy is also offered by an accredited play therapist to those children whose needs are assessed as requiring such a level of intervention.

A family camp is also run for families already involved in Temcare’s programs.
