May is Membership Month!
Annual membership runs from May 1, 2017 to April 30, 2018 and costs $45 per year (which averages out to only 86 cents a week). Membership fees are a much needed part of our annual revenue and help fund our Family Drop-In program, parent education, workshops, special events and seasonal celebrations. Membership is an integral part of community participation and an effective way to contribute to our sustainability. Our goal is to have 333 memberships paid for this year!If you did not have a membership last year, please go directly to our membership page. To renew your membership please go to CanadaHelps.org. When you visit the Family Centre, you can pay using cash, credit card, or cheque. Please speak to our staff and they will help you.
