Our Family Centre might be for you!
We recognize how tough juggling monthly budgets can be, especially when there are little mouths to feed. Community services and resources can also be difficult to navigate alone.
We’d love to help you find the support you need.
Support for families. Each year, our Family Centre offers programming to help you tackle topics like budgeting, cooking, literacy, parenting, and accessing city resources. Family Dinners are offered on the second Sunday of every month starting at 5:00 pm. This meal is planned with children in mind; enjoy some delicious food and our craft table!
Contact our Family Centre Coordinator, Diane Pearson (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Back-to-school support – The Fair Start for Kids program that runs every August offers basic school supply kits for grade-school students. Each kit conforms to supply lists provided by the Victoria school districts. Registration is limited so please call in advance in May or early June to ensure that we order enough supplies. Contact the Food Bank or Guest Services (250-953-1588) to register. Limited emergency kits may be available once they have been distributed on a first-come first-serve basis.
(The Fair Start program operates thanks to donations in large part from Times Colonist Literacy Fund, TLC Fund for Kids, The McAdams Foundation, CFAX Santa’s Anonymous, Canada Post Community Foundation)
