Many people know about the one to one support provided to KidsFirst families through home visitors and access to counselling, but did you know we also have a Community Developer who works with communities in the rural areas of the Saskatoon Health Region to take action on issues affecting young children and their families?
The KidsFirst Saskatoon Community Developer is currently working with the Rural Early Year's Coalition (REYC), bringing together community members and service providers who are working with famililes with young children in the rural areas of the Saskatoon Health Region. REYC is very exciting to be developing a Rural Asset Inventory Strategy to partner with rural communities who are interested in looking at what is working well in thier communities and builidng on their strengths. For more information about REYC or the Rural Asset Inventory Strategy, please contact Sydney Bell (655-5383).
The KidsFirst Saskatoon Community Developer is also working with other groups such as the Saskatoon Anti-Poverty Coaltion, a group of concerned citizens dedicated to addressing the root causes and effects of poverty in our community.
