Supporting new beginnings

Family Services

The Indus Family Services Program provides crisis intervention, counselling, mediation, case conferencing and day-to-day support to youth and adults to decrease the risk of violence and abuse, homelessness, mental health crisis and hospitalization. We welcome clients of all faiths, genders, ethnicity and sexual orientation. Our Family Services programs are free of charge, completely confidential and culturally and linguistically responsive. Indus staff members speak a variety of languages including Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil, Urdu, Bengali, English and French. All Family Services staff members are trained in Risk Assessment and Holistic Crisis Intervention and Planning. They can also provide you with a wide range of referrals to services and long-term support.

Health Services

Indus Health Services has grown over the years to match the demands of our aging population. With more and more of us reaching retirement age, community programs have grown and altered their structure to keep pace. Originally founded as India Rainbow Community Services of Peel in 1985, our agency is now fully accredited. Our programs provide patient-centred care to frail and/or cognitively impaired individuals in a safe and encouraging environment. Our services promote healthy aging, encourage an active lifestyle and ensure that the privacy and dignity of all our participants remain intact. Indus offers culturally and linguistically appropriate services to the entire community and has special expertise in South Asian cultures.

Newcomer Services

Starting a new life in a new country or city can be intimidating. Often we don’t know where to begin or who to turn to first for assistance. You can take comfort in knowing that Indus Community Services has over 30 years of experience guiding newcomers through the maze of employment, education & training, housing, health, citizenship, and financial questions that first come to mind. Our programs are free of charge and culturally and linguistically responsive. Our staff speaks a variety of languages including Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil, Urdu, Bengali, Gujarati and Arabic. Our programs are inclusive and welcome individuals of all faiths, gender, ethnicity and sexual orientation. We will be there for you step by step to ensure your transition goes as smoothly as possible.

Volunteering

Volunteering is one way you can make a difference! With a variety of roles and responsibilities available, volunteering at Indus can be a rewarding experience. Not only will you make a positive difference in the life of an Indus client, you can also learn new skills that may help your own career aspirations.
