Community & Social Impact

Committed to putting people first

Farber is committed to putting people first. We aspire to make a positive enduring impact on our clients, our people and the communities where we live and work. We are passionate about not only giving back and making a difference to help drive sustainable social change but also to connect with people that make our communities.

Each year our people support many charities. As a firm, we have supported Kids Help Phone through company-wide engagement by donating and raising funds & giving of our time since 2011.

Kids Help Phone estimates that in 2017 they provided 163 counselling sessions to youth across Canada every day. Almost one third of these sessions are provided to youth across Ontario, the highest of any province. The demand for these services continues to increase both over the phone and online.

Currently, approximately 90 full-and part-time counsellors work at Kids Help Phone. They are all trained, professional counsellors with a wide variety of backgrounds including social work, education, psychology, sociology, and child and youth services. Each has at least three to five years of experience in social services and telephone or web-based counselling, and is familiar with crisis intervention techniques.
