We help those who are in need. Helping everyone who walks through the doors. We run programs for the community members.
Executive director Jackie Kennedy said it was a good time to launch the initiative for something needed in the community.
“I’m very excited about it,” she said. “We have a 51-spot daycare we are going to be building. It is going to be specialty daycare – multicultural, with extended hours.”
The centre will offer various cultural activities and serve both First Nation and non-Indigenous families. Friendship Centres have been active in Saskatchewan since 1963 and since then the movement has grown within Saskatchewan to encompass 11 Friendship Centres who are part of the 125 member National Association of Friendship Centres.
