Due to a shortfall in our fundraising efforts this year, we have come to the difficult decision to reduce our drop-in hours.
In order to balance our budget, we will be closed Thursday afternoons starting October 10th, 2013 until the end of April 2014. At that time we hope to resume our full schedule.
We appreciate your patience and understanding!

Family FUNdamentals is a free family program for families with children from 2 to 4 years old. Come and learn together with your child about healthy eating, positive body image, active living, and positive parenting!
Family FUNdamentals will be offered through the Mount Pleasant Family Centre at our satellite location, the Kimount Boys and Girls Club, located on the corner of East 6th Avenue and Prince Edward Street.
The program will run for six weeks on Tuesdays from 9:30- 11:00am beginning on September 24th. Come and join us!
Please register at the Mount Pleasant Family Centre.
Come and join us for an afternoon celebrating Family Literacy on Thursday, August 15th from 10AM - 2PM. There will be storytelling, crafts, music, and much more! Everyone is invited to bring their own picnic and enoy the day.
Why should you become a Board member?
Because it’s a great experience! As a volunteer you’ll get to work together with a group of amazing, creative and multi talented people. You will have the chance to learn about how a non-profit organization works and runs efficiently; you may also get the chance to hone your leadership and delegation skills as a committee chair or executive member.
And you get the satisfaction of giving back to a program that does wonderful things for the community and perhaps has made a difference in your life.
Another positive thing is that childcare is provided at the regular board meetings each month and we take turns cooking and chairing the meetings. So you get to learn how to lead the group and taste a variety of new foods, although take out works just as well too. (A $30 reimbursement is provided for food expenses if needed.)
We would like to invite all parents and children to our annual Canada Day Celebration which will be hosted here at Robson Park on Thursday, June 27th from 10am-2pm. All are welcome! We will be having lots of special visitors, crafts, a live band and a parade.
We would like to give a big thank you to Libby Davies our Vancouver East Federal MP for providing a cake for our Canada Day celebrations and the many local businesses: IGA, G&F Financial, Destination Auto Group who supported our event with their kind donations!
