As of Friday, November 20th, New Westminster Family Place has decided to postpone reopening our in-person programming until the New Year. Our number one goal is keeping our families safe, and with the latest province-wide COVID-19 restrictions, we believe it is the best and most responsible decision. We will still be active in our community, offering support and resources – plus we are planning some super fun activities and surprises! However, as per the public health order, we won’t be gathering in-person.

We thank you for your patience at this time, and we can’t wait to continue working with all the amazing families that make New West Family Place the wonderful community that it is.
