Creating Capable Communities with Family Life
Children and families can face significant challenges to their health and safety if their environment is unsafe.
To combat this, Family Life works closely with families, neighbourhoods and broader communities to improve safety and well-being. We do this through our program, Creating Capable Communities.
Below is a list of services offered through this initiative.
We offer children a healthy breakfast and some snacks to take to school, while encouraging them to build relationships with other families and learn healthy habits. Read more here.
Lunch For Everyone
Children can struggle with their school work if they miss meals and go hungry. Family Life supports local volunteers to offer cooked meals to their school communities once a week.
Healthy Little Rainbows
Do you lack the time or the money to purchase fresh produce? This program provides low-cost groceries to families and parents who need it.
After School Club
Getting a child to sit down and talk with someone about the challenges they face is not easy. Our After School Club can help your child open up in a supportive and encouraging environment. Read more here.
If you can’t access traditional community support groups, our Community Houses offer positive learning environments for the whole family. While you and your child take part in early learning activities, we can also provide you with parenting information.
