Information Referral Coordinator

The Family Information and Referral Coordinators role is to help families navigate the court system by providing information to them about various issues, like accessing free mediation, finding legal advice and just generally how they are handling and processing their family breakdown.  They also help you connect with services in the community, like parenting programs.
