About The Cridge Centre for the Family

  • child care,
  • affordable & supportive housing for families in economic or relationship crisis,
  • emergency shelter and support for women and children escaping relationship abuse,
  • respite and Respitality services for families of children with special needs,
  • residential and community services for survivors of brain injuries,
  • support for young parents and
  • Seniors’ Assisted Living Housing.

What unites these diverse services is a commitment to manifest the Love of Jesus Christ to those in need.
