Why should you support Family Services of Greater Victoria?
You want to support Family Services of Greater Victoria because you believe that non-profits should have a high standard of service as well as administration, and actually deliver what they promise.
When you support us directly*, 100% of what you give supports services to families and individuals in crisis in the Greater Victoria area.
FSGV is transparent: Our annual reports tell the whole story of our budget and service delivery levels for the year.
FSGV is efficient: We deliver the level of service - in every program area - of a much, much bigger organization.
FSGV is professional: Everyone working with the clients of Family Services of Greater Victoria is a professional, working under the supervision of a professional body with a professional designation and insurance.
FSGV is effective: We monitor our effectiveness with client review processes. Having been around a long time, we are always hearing what our support meant to people, 10 or 20 or 30 years later.
FSGV is innovative: We are always looking for better ways to run programs, developing new programs, and working with other agencies to improve service delivery. In the last three years we have developed and delivered a new mediation program, begun a research project on men’s experience of divorce, and partnered with the Victoria Immigrant and Refugee Centre Society to start Victoria’s first Social Innovation Centre.
* If you designate to us through paycheque deductions, all of your money goes directly to service delivery - not administrative costs.
