The Elspeth Reid Family Fund provides the community with an opportunity to invest in Westman families and children through financial support of family strengthening programs offered through the Elspeth Reid Family Resource Centre.
Van operating costs – $5,000 X two vans
Transportation to and from the Elspeth Reid Family Resource Centre is made available to all families who have no other way of attending programs.
Parent-Child Home Program – $250 per child per year
Educational books and toys are used by our volunteer Home Visitors as they work with families to support parents in their role as their child’s first and most important teacher, and to support children ages two to four as they develop language and early literacy skills.
Food costs – $5,000 annually
Refreshments are served at all Family Strengthening Programs. We learn better with something in our tummies!
