New! Virtual Support Groups
Starting March 19, join us Tuesdays and Thursdays for our virtual support groups.
Weekly groups will be held Tuesday: 10:30 - 11:30 am and Thursday: 1:30 - 2:30 pm. Grab a coffee and chat with our Family Support Workers and the community online. Waiting parents welcome.
Online Support Groups
Our online support groups give parents a place to connect through Facebook. Some groups tackle parenting issues, while others have a geographical focus or connect specific types of families. All groups offer the opportunity to share experiences, socialize, and build friendships.
All groups are closed, require commitments by members to respect confidentiality, and are facilitated by one or more family support workers. This ensures that the group stays focused and that confidentiality is respected by all.
