Since October 2005, the West Island Women’s Centre has been offering “Time for Two,” an arts and crafts program for young families in the territory of the CLSC Lac St. Louis. This is part of the Our Place Drop-In Mom and Tots 0-5 Playgroup Program. The aim of the activities are to break isolation and to support all families, especially those headed by young mothers, low-income families, or families who have recently immigrated to Canada.

“Time for Two” encourages a joyful, positive experience for mother and child to share. An added benefit of the project is the opportunity it offers mothers to interact with one another and experience first-hand a very positive mother/child relationship. Mothers help to create an enriching environment in which their child can learn and grow. With the assistance of the instructor, they also learn how to incorporate stories and art into their day-to-day family life.

Fall 2017 — Donations Requested

The Women’s Centre is looking for donations of new craft materials to be included in the gift bags given to the children later this fall. Can you help? Here is the list of what we need. Thank you for your generosity!
