Bow Valley Parent Link
BVPL started a new pilot program at the Canmore Parent Link. We have converted our Tuesday morning drop-in to a day home provider day which has been very successful. Day homes have had the opportunity to utilize our space during a quieter time, connect with other providers in the community and access some of our resources. We are looking forward to working with them on this pilot throughout the summer months as well. Please let us know if you hear any feedback in the community – this is an important part of this project.
