As we advance towards incorporation as a Company Limited by Guarantee, thereby ensuring continuation of necessary funding for the Centre, our hopes for the future are to:

  • Continue to provide an atmosphere of welcome ,peace and enrichment for all who require support in the coming years
  • Be inclusive of volunteers, staff and clients and encourage participation and a sense of belonging.
  • Operate on community development principles of social justice and self-determination focusing on the empowerment and participation of marginalised groups in decision making that impacts on their lives and on the community.
  • Support families in a professional, fair and compassionate manner, whilst respecting the need for confidentiality and discretion.
  • Work to make a real difference in the lives of families using our services and the wider community.

The work of the Centre, since 1987, has highlighted the practical contribution that it has made and continues to make to the quality of life experienced by individuals and families in the community.
Currently there are two strands to the Centre:

  • Family Resource Centre
  • Boyle Counselling and Psychotherapy Centre

I wish to take this opportunity to thank all those who have been involved in the Centre over the past almost thirty years; the Bishops of Elphin, Fr. Brian Conlon, Fr Padraig Greene, past and present VMC members and staff, our funders, group leaders and teams and our much appreciated past and present volunteers.

Changing circumstances in today's world call for a new approach to the care of families. There is an increasing awareness of the crucial issues facing contemporary marriage and family life-the pressure of modern living, unemployment, increase in addictions, isolation within communities, changes in moral and spiritual values and marginalization.

We aim to support and enrich family life in its diverse forms today, to affirm the value and uniqueness of each human being irrespective of gender, marital status, family status, sexual orientation, religious belief, age, disability, race, membership of the travelling community.

We aim to provide an atmosphere of welcome and peace and enrichment for individuals, couples and families to explore important issues and find meaningful ways of living, through our comprehensive range of professional services, support groups and programmes. In this culture of the individual we aim to build on families strengths.

We aim to empower leaders to work with families by providing essential training and skills for growth and development.

We aim to develop a holistic approach linking Spirituality with human development.

We aim to network with other agencies in the statutory and voluntary sectors, which work for the well being of families.
