Pregnant women and new moms meet as a group once a week on Wednesday mornings in Lindsay in the City of Kawartha Lakes and on Thursday mornings in Haliburton. Moms share their knowledge with one another, listen to guest speakers and get up-to-date information and support around pregnancy, birth, breast feeding, nutrition, growth and development and parenting. A nutritious meal is provided, and group members are able to access free milk, fresh vegetables, additional food and prenatal vitamins. It’s a busy, fun, positive place to be!
Way to Grow (Community Action Program For Children/CAPC)
Parents with young children, 6 or under, meet weekly on Tuesday mornings in Haliburton. Parents receive information on a variety of topics, learn to cook nutritious food on a budget, and learn about other agencies and supports that can assist families with any issues they may be dealing with (such as finances, housing, legal, personal, vocational, or social). Children’s programming provides young children with stimulating activities designed to increase their developmental skills and build social skills. Life-long friendships have been forged at CAPC which is fast-paced, interactive and lots of fun!
Transportation, or help with gas, is provided if needed.
