Organizational Profile  

The Chester and Area Family Resource Centre is a grass-roots organization which began in the summer of 1994 with the cooperation of the Public Health Department.  A group of new parents volunteered to organize a New Parents Group, where children and parents came together once a month for socializing.  The group was extremely propular and added a weekly playgroup.


After a telephone needs-assessment in the winter of 1995, the respondents indicated a Family Resource Centre would be supported by the community.  The group formally incorporated in 1995 as a non-profit organization, and charitable status was granted in 1998 by the Government of Canada.  The organization has always been run by a volunteer Board of Directors, who are elected at the Annual General Meeting each September.
