Nurturing Strong African Nova Scotian Families is a family support program for African Nova Scotian parents. This new program is being offered in locations throughout Nova Scotia, including Pictou County!

To register, or for more information, contact 


When: Thursdays, beginning March 23rd from 5:3 0 – 7:30 pm

Where: 110 Provost Street, New Glasgow (Kids 1st location)


Join us for a meal and take part in conversations about some of the realities faced by African Nova Scotian parents and caregivers. Our goal is to offer a safe space, and provide topic information to begin discussions that encourage parents/caregivers to share information, stories, advice, and support. Working together we can build solutions that nurture strong African Nova Scotian Families in Pictou County.


Baby Playtime: This is a new drop-in program specifically designed for new parents with babies 12 months and under. It takes place in our front room on Fridays while our regular drop-in runs. Older siblings and a caregiver can play at drop-in at the same time.


Tuesday mornings 9:30-11:30 at Kids First, New Glasgow

This gathering is meant for women

to sit together in a circle and learn about healthy relationships,

with ourselves and with others.
