Celebrating the Vibrant Lives of Halton Families
Families are central to the positive development and success of children and youth and are also at the heart of safe and thriving communities.
Three Halton families have shared their stories of challenges, successes and love.
Here's what people who were there said about the interviews:
"Loved the stories! Thank you to the families..."
"Takes one person to make an impactful difference."
"How strong and resilient families are..."
"Nothing better than hearing first-hand the impact that services, supports and resources can have and how important it is for us to be family-centred."

The conversations took place at the Our Kids Network 2014 Annual Meeting Day event on November 26, 2014.
We are grateful to the Faruquis, the Callans and the Logan-Powells for their openness and willingness to share both the successes and the challenges in their lives. Thanks to Bob Cowan of CHCH Hamilton for hosting the conversations.
