The Family Support Institute is a province-wide organization whose purpose is to support and strengthen families faced with the extraordinary circumstances that come with having a family member who has a disability. We believe that families are the best resource available to support one another.  Directed by families, the Family Support Institute provides information, training and province-wide networking to assist families and their communities to build upon and share their strengths.

When your son or daughter has a disability, life often becomes different from anything you could ever have imagined. You may find yourself in a world you never knew existed, one you may be reluctant to embrace, where there are more questions than answers.

The Family Support Institute is unique in Canada. It began with the help of the B.C. Association for Community Living in 1986 in response to the needs and requests of families of people with disabilities.  The Family Support Institute's philosophy was developed based upon the following beliefs:

  1. All people have gifts, strengths, and much to contribute to society.
  2. Parents are the experts when it comes to understanding their own children.
  3. Families serve as a unique and valuable resource to each other.
  4. Informed, involved, and confident parents are the most effective agents for social change on behalf of their children.
  5. All humans have the right to be valued and feel that they belong.
