A New Space for Family Place!
For almost two decades, New Westminster Family Place has called their location at 93 Sixth Street home. It is bittersweet to announce that we will be vacating the space as of October 31, 2020.
Our current space has provided a wonderful home base for the organization, but one of the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic is that our space is not functional for our programming. We would need to drastically limit the number of families who have access to our space while the need to early years education and family support is even more critical. Before COVID-19 we acknowledged that we had outgrown our space and had begun planning for an upgrade. This time is the catalyst to expand our programming, and to create a more accessible space for their community. We believe that these changes will free us up for more innovative and responsive programming in neighbourhoods around New West!
Family Place knows that it is not the location that makes our space a home – it’s the people who work here and the community that surrounds it. Families stick together wherever they go, and so will Family Place 😊
