A Family Resource Centre is a warm and welcoming place in the community where any family member can go, not only in times of need, but as a regular part of day-to-day life. Family Resource Centres offer parent education classes, child development activities, parent-to-parent support groups, health information, referrals and many other programs, activities and services. These services are modified and added to, depending on the needs and desires of local families. Maggie's Place programs and services are offered free of charge.
Family Resource Centres are unique in their approach to working with families: they build families’ strengths and capacities, serve as a hub for the community, work for positive social change, and offer help in a supportive environment. Parents act as resources in many capacities, from serving on a decision-making board, participating in Centre programs and learning job skills.
