Our History

Catholic Family Services of Simcoe County (CFSSC) was formed in May 2008 through the coming together of Catholic Family Life Centre-Simcoe South (based in Barrie) and the North Simcoe Catholic Family Life Centre (based in Midland). The two founding agencies had enjoyed a solid reputation of providing professional counselling services, education programs and community development activities for more than 30 years prior to amalgamation.

The newly formed agency continues in the footsteps of its founding parents in its efforts to meet the ever increasing demands for access to professional counselling on a sliding fee scale. The agency has been described as a gift from the Catholic community to the broader community of Simcoe County.
