Membership Matters

FERN is a  not-for-profit community organization offering mental health and wellness counseling, social programs, school advocacy and academic remediation for families in York Region.

Not-for-profit corporations are organizations that provide products or services to improve or benefit a community.

These organizations are usually concerned with generating enough revenue to provide support to their community.

Any money made by a not-for-profit is not for the personal gain of its directors, members or officers, but goes back into the organization to further its aims and projects.

FERN Membership helps generate revenue for the services it provides to the community and offset expenses.

An annual fee of $125.00 contributes to :

-FERN FUNDS

-sliding scales for families in need

-office supplies and photocopying reports for family files

-specialized resources and online curriculum

-subsidize costs of social programs, speaker's fees and seasonal events

- subsidize costs of parenting events - "FAMILY TALKS"

-FERN healthy snack bar

-lending library of educational materials

We want to be able to support everyone; some individuals may qualify for reduced membership rates, please inquire.
