Through a federal program of the Public Health Agency of Canada known as the Community Action Program for Children (CAPC), funding has been made available throughout New Brunswick to develop and operate Family Resource Centers. The Kings County Family Resource Centre is available to all families and people in the Kings County area, free of charge, who either have or care for children between the ages of birth and six years. Designed for parents / caregivers to come together with their children, it offers a happy, healthy, and safe environment for families and children to play and enjoy one another, as well as other children and parents / caregivers. What a great place to meet new parents / caregivers and for little ones to meet new playmates!

  5. Moving Forward

    Moving Forward is a program for mothers and children who have left family abuse and are focused on healing. Children from 4-16 years work in a group with other children close to their own age while mothers work together in a separate group.

    Children learn that they are not alone in their experience and what healthy relationships look like. Mothers can process their experiences and learn new skills in a supportive and confidential environment.

    Registration is free and you can self-refer. For more information call 433 4842.
