Touchstone Family Association
Strengthening Families • Building Community

Touchstone is a non-profit community based social service agency. We have been providing services to Richmond and nearby areas since 1983.

Our services have primarily focused on preserving and enhancing family relationships. Through qualified staff, we offer a wide variety of professional services to the community.

Supervised Access

prog supervised

Touchstone’s supervised access program is provided to Richmond based families involved with the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD). The program offers an opportunity for children who have been separated from their parents and/or extended family members to visit in an atmosphere of safety and support, under the guidance of a Family Support Worker. The program provides visits in a variety of settings, reunifying families in the community, their own homes, and/or virtually online.

Please note, supervised access is a gated program and only accessible by the Richmond MCFD office. We are unable to accommodate private, court-mandated cases.

For further information on the program, please contact Nicole Cartier
