Mrs. Garcia and her family initially started visiting the Parent Link Centre in January of 2017 with her husband and three year old son. Their hope upon coming to the Parent Link Centre was to grow their parenting knowledge to help improve their son’s social skills. The couple also recently welcomed a second child into their family. A little girl who is now five months old.
Over the following two years, Mrs. Garcia and her family attended many different programs as well as completed the Triple P Positive Parenting Program. The family is always happy to be at the Parent Link Centre and is always so gracious and appreciative with any information, referrals or resources that are provided to them.
The Winter Breather Program provided grocery support to this family at a stressful time. With bringing a new baby home and trying to navigate the holiday season, the support came at a great time for them. Mrs. Garcia was so appreciative; she was so shocked at the dollar amount and was so incredibly grateful for the support. With tears in her eyes she stated how one day she would pay it forward, and hopes that there will be a time in her near future where she can donate and help other families in need.
It was so heartwarming to be able to help and support this family in a time of need.
