The Board Members, Staff, Advisers and Membership of the South Cariboo Community Planning Council would like to say thank-you very much for your support of our organization. Your contribution has made possible our continuing work to build a healthier, safer, and more inclusive South Cariboo.
You have all been my community!
I just wanted to say "thank-you" to everyone involved in the weekly drop-in. I have been attending since 2001 and have loved being a part of a program that has helped me and my family tremendously.
I feel great having my children attend the CFEC daycare. The staff are knowledgable, creative, and so caring with the kids. I love getting the artwork the kids bring home and hearing about the special things they have been doing like baking and going on outings. They spend so much time playing and going for walks outside in the fresh air. It is a really special and safe environment for little ones to spend time away from home.
Being a mom who works from home and in the community, and at times, with my children coming along for the ride, has its perks and its challenges. Having a comfortable place for diaper changes in town has come in handy more than once. There isn't time to go home with only 20 minutes between meetings and its not easy to change a baby in the front seat of a car, especially in the winter! It is helpful to have a place open during the work day where we can stop in, get cleaned up, and even run around and play a little bit.
Looking forward to further (training) courses.
It was great to hang out with other moms and kids.
You all rock!
CFEC is a great support system.
It was great to have someone listen and give valuable feedback and resources.
The CFEC staff are excellent to work with. They are helpful, knowledgeable and supportive.
(An excerpt from a letter from Sean Watson:)
I have been actively involved as a Community Partner with the CFEC in 100 Mile House since the first week landing in 100 Mile back in late 2010. I have 5 young children of my own and my wife and I have utilized the Family Enrichment Centers in all the communities we have lived in. All Centers have been great with resources and support,Â but I am one of the largest cheerleaders for our Cariboo Family Enrichment Center in 100 Mile as they are the best that I have ever dealt with.
What makes them the Best in my eyes, you may ask? As a community partner, first and foremost, the entire center shares the same value in wanting to provide the highest levels of support, activities and resources to the families and communities in the South Cariboo. They emulate this in everything they do within the community. This has been shown throw community events, community resources and through getting out there and improving the lives of the children and families in the area. The support and recognition they offer to Early Childcare providers, ensuring there is enough after school care for each of our areas is amazing. Their focus on providing a resource and a caring ear to parents and families in need of help, guidance or a person just to let them know they are not alone in the challenge we call life. I believe they do all this not because it is their job but because they care about their community and the people within that community. The positive attitude starts from the minute you walk through their doors and it never lets up, whether it is giving information, leading Wiggles and Shakes (A personal favorite in my house), providing a resource, leading a support group, it is all real all the time and you all do an amazing job!!
