Carizon is a source of hope for our community. When children, youth, adults, couples or families face life’s challenges, Carizon programs and services provide the care and compassion to help them achieve wellness.
On April 1, 2013, Mosaic Counselling and Family Services and kidsLINK (Notre Dame of St. Agatha) amalgamated to form one organization – Carizon Family and Community Services. Carizon is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of voluntary community members.
As a united agency, Carizon provides a comprehensive and integrated approach to the delivery of community services in the area of children’s mental health, youth engagement and development, family violence, individual and family counselling, credit counselling, settlement supports and collective wellness.
With a head office located in the heart of the City of Kitchener, Carizon provides a full spectrum of services at various locations throughout the Region.
Carizon is committed to providing services in a way that respects the dignity and independence of people with disabilities. Carizon strives to give individuals with disabilities opportunity to access services and to benefit from the same services, in the same place and in a similar way as others, unless an alternative measure is necessary to enable the person to access services.
Carizon is dedicated to ensuring that our organization remains a vital leader in the Region of Waterloo and that our programs and services are relevant, accountable and of the highest quality.
