Family Parenting Place temporarily relocated

Water damage causes shut-down of facility in Agassiz

Family Parenting Place in Agassiz is temporarily set up at the Catholic church across the street until a mould problem can be dealt with on-site.

A dishwasher in the building flooded on multiple occasions, leading to water damage. Laura Midan, executive director of Agassiz-Harrison Community Services, which operates Family Parenting Place, says it has been a lengthy undertaking to work through the insurance issues around getting the facility fixed.

“We’ve been in quite an insurance process,” shares Midan. “We’re working on repairing the water damage.”

In the meantime, parents with children aged 0-6 can attend the free program at the St. Anthony of Padua Catholic church across the street from Family Parenting Place on Morrow Road. Family Parenting Place operates Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:30-1 p.m., along with a Better Beginnings prenatal program on Tuesday mornings from 10-1 p.m.
