Family Connections Project
Mount Pleasant Community Centre
Daycare workers in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant area were frustrated because they were struggling to help parents who were experiencing social, economic and health challenges. In response to their concerns, a special project was created to benefit kids by focusing on the needs of their parents.
The program has a family connections coordinator working in five daycare centres that help strengthen families, starting with the parents. The coordinator organizes workshops that offer parenting tips and provides access to supportive resources.
Vancouver Foundation has given a grant that has helped with the success of this program.
