Our Vision

Gibsons Family Network (GFN) is a non-profit charitable organization with a vision of helping people with disabilities to find meaningful, integrated employment and support within our community.

GFN began as an association of families living in Gibsons, BC who have a family member or relative with a developmental disability. The group formed in 2004 and incorporated as a non-profit society in March 2006 in order to move forward to meet the need for more services on the Sunshine Coast.

What GFN Can Do for You and Your Family

Networks ensure a safe and secure future for your relative by contributing to the quality of their life now.

    They do this by supporting the individual to:

        ·         provide links to others in our community, province and country
        ·         advocate on behalf of themselves
        ·         provide a forum for network members to support each other
        ·         help provide security and a sense of relief for all family members
        ·         act as a resource for families
        ·         act as representatives and support decision making
        ·         spend time with friends
        ·         plan, dream, socialize and have fun together
        ·         provide books and videos on community inclusion and other topics of interest
