Family Dynamics operates six neighbourhood family resource centres within subsidized housing developments throughout Winnipeg.
Our goal is to have empowered individuals living in healthy families within a well-connected, supportive community. Core programming at each centre may include:
- Community kitchens
- Family fun nights
- Public access computers
- Used clothing depots
- Breakfast clubs
- Youth programming
- Information, support and referral
Community Advisory Committees work in collaboration with staff and area stakeholders to develop programs that meet the unique needs identified by each community. Each family resource centre publishes a monthly newsletter that lists current events and programs. Manitoba Housing provides the space for these Family Resource Centres and has selected the participating communities. For more information contact the individual centre directly or download their most recent newsletter.
