For MFC manager Patricia Dabiri and her team, their work is about so much more than just the services and programs they provide:
"The MFC has created a place where people feel welcome at any time; what we emphasize is safety. We want to build the capacity of participants to identify and manage their health needs, recognizing and enhancing the expertise and participation of the community and its members. Our Cross-Cultural Health Promoters (CCHPs), frontline health workers who are trusted members of the cultural communities served, help to achieve these goals. It's a place where they can connect with other people in the community - often for the first time since they arrived in Canada."
Our Cross-Cultural Health Promoters have training and experience in social work, counseling, medicine, early childhood education, and health promotion. We provide the following programs, designed and implemented in collaboration with community members, at the MFC and at other community locations when appropriate:
Our new Circles of Wellbeing event is starting soon! Funded by the Community Action Initiative, this event aims to connect youth and elders of a variety of culturals with one another to foster learning, acceptance, and a strong sense of community. It will take place this Thursday, November 3 at the Britannia Cafeteria. Please see the poster for more information, or call the MFC if you have any questions about this incredible event.
The Cross Cultural Health Promoters (CCHP) at the Multicultural Family Centre are there to help you, no matter what your primary language or your cultural background.
