The Town of Hinton is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a three-year grant to provide Caregiver Education and Support Services for the Hinton community. This grant was provided through the provincial Family Resource Network, and Hinton is part of the West Yellowhead Family Resource Network.
The Caregiver Education Coordinator is a part-time grant-funded position that offers education and support to caregivers to increase their capacity to create safe, responsive, and nurturing environments and encourage healthy child development. This role will involve: developing and presenting workshops; liaising with local, regional, and provincial partners; offering one-on-one support to caregivers; and offering education and resources to families.
During COVID-19, we are offering modified services to ensure families are supported during the pandemic. Current services include:
First-time moms have extra challenges of isolation and limited supports during the pandemic.
Sessions are held every second Tuesday (starting on May 26).
Join our Caregiver Education Coordinator in a non-judgmental space to talk about the challenges and joys of parenting, to work through specific parenting challenges, and to develop a customized parenting workplan.
Meetings are scheduled based on availability.
