Weekly Programs

All Family Futures participants as well as any community families may attend a variety of weekly group programs. All these programs are popular and well attended. Our Outreach workers act as Facilitators or Co Facilitators for these programs. Weekly programs of 2-hour sessions include:

  • Baby Image Moms 4 Life – Based on the determinants of health and personal development, our facilitators lead a group of young women on a personal development journey and prenatal information through weekly workshops. This program is offered in our facility with child care, transportation and a meal provided.

In 2003 this program grew to include a fully licensed child care facility capable of accommodating up to 9 infants and 6 toddlers during the daytime hours. During 2009-2010 we expanded to include 3 Licensed Centres - 196 - 9 Street East - 52 spaces for infants, toddlers and preschool; King George Centre - 17 preschool and 13 schoolage spaces; Riverside Centre - 6 infants, 10 toddlers and 16 preschool plus school age care. Our childcare is designed to promote healthy child development with professional childcare staff.
