Our History

What is a Family Resource Centre?





Vision Statement

To provide a warm friendly meeting place for families which will support children and parents in their role and offer information needed to help them through the challenges of parenting and family life.



Our History

Realizing that there was a serious gap in available services for families with children 0-5 the Estevan Council for Prevention of Child Abuse along with community members researched and developed the idea of a Family Resource Centre. The Child Abuse council wanted the Family Resource Centre to be a central family focused facility which links families to existing programming and offers resources and opportunities through the development and delivery of new programs to parents, caregivers and children. On February 4, 2002 this dream became a reality and the Estevan Family Resource Centre opened its doors.

The Family Resource Centre serves as a host site for information and existing family oriented programs and services in the area; this allows us to offer a broad range of collaborative and coordinated services to families throughout the family lifecycle. The Family Resource Centre programs and services are free to all families.



What is A Family Resource Centre?

The FAMILY is society’s most valuable institution. The family unit as a whole needs to become involved and supported, and it is through Family Resource Centre’s that such a holistic approach can be met. A Family Resource Centre provides Prevention focussed programs, Early Learning Programs, offers Educational opportunities for Parents and caregivers, has print resources available, provides support, links families to other existing agencies and most of all is non threatening in nature.

At the Estevan Family Resource Centre we have a vision with the COMMUNITY in mind. We believe that the health of our children and their families is directly connected to the health of our COMMUNITY. We believe in a Centre that welcomes all members of a COMMUNITY to a warm, friendly, supportive and comfortable environment where families can play together, meet new friends, gain new skills and share ideas.

The Estevan Family Resource Centre provides the COMMUNITY of Estevan with the kind of facility that Estevan is lacking. That is a place where people young and old, single or married, financially secure or those with fewer resources available, can share and enjoy programming and activities, both recreational and educational.

The Estevan Family Resource Centre provides a place for fun and enjoyment, education and resources. Most of all, it is a COMMUNITY Resource Centre, a place where residents of Estevan and surrounding areas can connect and reconnect, with traditional values of friendship and family. Which are the foundations of a COMMUNITY. Healthy families work together to shape healthy COMMUNITIES. The Estevan Family Centre recognizes the strengths and abilities of all Estevan residents that seek to harness the energy of our vibrant COMMUNITY.
