Family Support

Volunteer Miramichi has a stand alone department dedicated to working with children and adults who need assistance in their day to day lifestyle.



It is our philosophy to advocate for the children we service; for their safety and wellbeing.  We support, protect and enhance the family unit by working to keep the children in their homes and/or assisting with the reunification of families.  We abide by the Family Services Act and work hand in hand with The Department of Social Development
