Family resources

Our Programs

We host a number of Family Resource Programs, in coordination with our supporting partners.  Please explore the programs we have to offer.

Food

WeCan Food Basket

The WECAN Food Basket program is in place to give members a level of food security.  It offers people the option to pay for produce and meat at the beginning of the month, to be picked up mid-month.

Free Bread Program

We are fortunate to receive baked goods from local businesses.  Bread is given for free at the Beverly Daycare Society location.

After the Bell

During the summer, the Food Banks Canada provides BDCS individual bags of a variety of snacks for us to give to our families.

Collective Kitchen

Register with the Collective Kitchen to share knowledge, skills, and energy to create low-cost, nutritious meals for your family.

Parenting

Health for Two

This FREE program supports pregnant women during pregnancy by giving them nutritional and other pre-natal supports.

Basically Babies

Basically Babies is a registered charity that provides basic outfitting needs for babies 0-6 months.

Parent Workshops

Parent workshops are frequently hosted to offer knowledge for parents and community members.  Some workshops we have hosted are Speechified, Bringing Stories to Life, and Canada Revenue.  Check here often.

Community

Donation Centre & Clothing Exchange

We encourage our community members to drop off gently used clothing that their family has outgrown to be used by other members of the community.

All donated clothing is available, free of charge.

Stay and Play

Stay & Play is a valuable program for parents and children (birth to 6 years old) to attend together. Registration is required for now to limit the number of families in the playgroup.

Play areas are set up with blocks, toys, crafts, and age-appropriate science experiments to encourage curiosity and natural learning.  Children and guardians are given a safe and inviting learning environment to explore.

Donate-a-Ride

Individuals can receive up to 4 free bus tickets per month in order to get to appointments, meetings, schooling etc.
