Acorn Family Place’s 25th Anniversary
Celebrating 25 Years of Walking Alongside Families
This year we are celebrating our 25-year anniversary as a family resource centre!
AFP fosters the development of community by creating equitable opportunities for families to connect and reach their fullest potential.
We’d love to celebrate with you everyday next week!
Starting Monday, September 11 to Friday to September 15 we have fun-family friendly activities planned. Get a stamp for each activity in your 25th Anniversary Passport and win a prize if you have a stamp for every activity!
We are looking forward to celebrating with you!
What began as a small program to support families in a little corner in the basement of the former Misericordia nursing residence has grown and evolved to be a multi-service family resource centre today.
Our centre has expanded and celebrated countless milestones along the way, from adding new programs to respond to community needs, to a move to a new location in 2019 and the launch of our new name and branding in 2022
Over the past quarter century of work in the community, thousands of families have come through the doors and thousands of children have played and grown in the Playroom, sharing countless moments of joy, learning, and connection. We are proud to have been part of this community for all these years. We will be celebrating all week long, September 11-15, 2023 with a full week’s schedule of family friendly activities.
Please join us on Friday, September 15 for Celebrating 25 Years of Walking Alongside Families. A full day event that will be the grand finale to the week of anniversary celebrations. There will be food, prizes, speeches from AFP staff and community members. It will be a time to share stories and come together to honour the past 25 years.
Without the support of the amazing members of our community, we would not be here. Everyone of you plays a very important role in making Acorn Family Place the community hub it is today and we are so grateful for each person who walks through our doors. We are honoured to be sharing this exciting milestone with all of you.
Celebrating 25 Years of Walking Alongside Families will be held at Acorn Family Place.
The centre is located on the 2nd Floor of the Crossways in Common Building, 222 Furby St. Please call (204) 560-3141 if you have any questions and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to find out what we have planned!
