Better Beginnings continues to support pregnant Mothers in our community through the pandemic.  The program offers a weekly education session via zoom and weekly socially distanced meet-ups for tangible items and support.  

Once registered, women continue to participate in the program until their babies are 6 months old.  Moms are able to access food vouchers, eggs, bread, prenatal vitamins, vitamin D drops, diapers, baby clothing, baby toys and furniture, and more every Thursday at the Neighborhood Learning Centre attached to Chilliwack Secondary School.  Participants have access to a lactation consultant, family navigator & family resource program practitioner.  

Better Beginnings has a Facebook group that pregnant registrants can join for social support and community connection:  

Contact Lana at [email protected] to sign up (and for the zoom link).

What we do:

Two classes are held each week with continuous intake. Connections are made by meeting new friends and neighbors. We also provide information and referrals to a network of family resources and services.

Through the pandemic, the Chilliwack Family Place Network continues to meet the needs of the community through online zoom circles times, monthly Busy Bags (prepackaged activities for local children to enjoy), online Mother Goose Classes, referrals to online parenting programs, weekly in-person egg and bread delivery, support phone calls, socially distanced visits & more.  

We hope to return to regular nature based programming in local parks soon & are eagerly anticipating the arrival of a big order of Muddy Buddies that will make outdoor activities in any weather more comfortable for our families.
