Trinity Conception Family Resource Center

Our History

The Trinity Conception Family Resource Centre was incorporated in 1995 and has been continually growing in numbers since then.

The Community Action Program for Children (CAPC), a component of the Brighter Futures Initiative was announced by the Federal government in May 1992 in response to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

CAPC is managed jointly with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and is designed to help community groups in high risk communities to address the priority health and developmental needs of at risk children ages 0-6 years.

CAPC is an ongoing federal initiative which provides long term financial assistance to programs in the form of prevention, promotion and early intervention programs and support services which will complement existing federal, provincial, and non-governmental programs and services in the community.

Programs may include family resource centres, child development/enrichment centres, parenting education, and early literacy initiatives. Expected outcomes of programs include improved perinatal health, reduced childhood obesity, positive parenting, enhanced child development and school readiness.
