Changes to our spring/summer programming

This past year brought a lot of changes to our current programs, and we were both challenged and excited to switch our in person programs to virtual, as well as create new and exciting ways to support families and stay connected!

Now that the warmer weather has finally arrived, we will once again be making a few small changes.

  • The Hugs4NewMoms program which was created to support new moms who are experiencing parenting in a time of isolation and uncertainty will be coming to an end, with the last meeting being held virtually on Monday March 29.  Moms who have been participating in this group are welcome to join the Parachute program which will be continuing through the next few months.


  • The Parachute program is designed to support mothers in their first year of motherhood and provides a safe space to discuss the changes, joys and challenges with other facilitator Jane Flinders, other mothers and guest speakers.  This group has been meeting virtually on Wednesday afternoons, but will be meeting virtually on Tuesday mornings at 11:00 beginning April 6.


  • The Parachute group will be meeting outdoors once weather and social distancing policy allows.  Please request to join the Parachute Facebook group to stay up to date and engaged online.  We will post in person events on social media as well.

Please email or with any questions to these changes.

Thank you to everyone who has participated and supported these changes.  We will continue as always to help, support and connect moms and families!
