Episode 16: Season 2- Family Resource Centers- Helping NB Families live there best life.
Thirteen Family Resource Centres, funded through the Community Action Program for Children (CAPC), and Education & Early Childhood Development (EECD) operate in New Brunswick . They are governed by community Board of Directors. The Centre’s programs cover the province through a network of more than 90 outreach sites, many in isolated rural areas.
Family Resource Centres offer a variety of free programs and activities for parents and their children ages 0 – 6, including drop-ins, parent education and support groups, collective kitchens, prenatal & postnatal nutrition programs, toy and resource-lending libraries and programs to promote parent-child communication and bonding, family literacy and child development and safety.
The Centres work with several partners including Active Kids, HEPAC, literacy, education, family and health organizations.
