The South Shore Family Resource Association (SSFRA) is dedicated to nurturing and enhancing the quality of life to every member of every family in Queens, Lunenburg and Shelburne Counties.

Our Guiding Principles

Children First - Children must be the primary consideration in CAP-C (Community Action Program for Children) programs.

Strengthening and Support Families - All sectors of Canadian society share the responsibility for children by supporting parents as they raise their children.

Equity and Accessibility - Children, regardless of culture and socio- economic status, are entitled to equal opportunities to develop to their full potential.

Partnerships and Coalitions - Holistic support for children and their families can only be achieved through the combined effort of parents, families, communities, governments and service providers.

Community-Based - The community is viewed as the focus for decision-making and action.

Flexibility - In order to respond to the diversity of communities across Canada and the particular circumstances and changing needs of children and families, CAP-C programs must be flexible.
