Message From The Executive Director 


     A little hand pulls but can’t quite get the big door open. Mom shifts the car seat

     to her other arm and reaches out to help. As soon as the door cracks open the

     three-year-old slips inside, ripping her boots off and she beelines to hug the giant teddy          bear. Mom exhales a happy sigh. The next half hour will be a perfect combination

     of joy-filled bonding and mayhem.


The above scenario is one of many I have the pleasure of experiencing here at the Family Place every day. My team and I work very hard to create a positive atmosphere where people feel safe and loved. A place they can come and just be themselves and where they are inspired to love and support others.


As someone who has experienced the safe haven of The Family Place myself when my son Noah’s speech was delayed, I understand how important The Family Place is. We all need love and support! The family is the cornerstone of our society, and no one can do it all on their own. It is my goal to help The Family Place embody these truths and to strive towards our goal of Improving the quality of life for families and children in Weyburn and the surrounding area.


Thank you for partnering with us by visiting our website. May you be encouraged and inspired by the positive things happening here at The Family Place and in the community of Weyburn.
