The Family Resource Centre in Swift Current is settling into its new location in the Hillside Plaza.
The move took place after the non-profit outgrew its previous location at Walker Place explained Executive Director, Laura Beddome.
“Over time, our space just shifted,” she elaborated. “We grew and the space that we had at Walker Place, some areas of it were shared space and some areas over time became inaccessible. So, while we were at Walker Place, some of our programs and services needed to be offered in different locations, such as the stockade, over the last spring and fall seasons."
Beddome added that the new location offers space for all of their programs as well as room for growth.
“We started the hunt for a space in Swift Current with the square footage that can work for us into the long term and give us the opportunity to offer all of our programs and services from one location and just have a fantastic space that we could make our own, and we were able to find that at this location,” she stated. “It was previously a medical clinic and so starting in the summer we undertook some renovations to change up the space quite significantly.
"We opened it up to allow it to be best suited to the needs of our organization, and we're really excited to be able to now have all members of our team, and all of our services and programming offered through one place that people can find and hopefully that will work really, really well into the future.”
The Family Resource Centre can now be found at #6 1061 Central Ave North.
