“The feeling I got the first time I came here. How welcome I felt and how happy to have so much support at a time I was lost.”

“It is the place I live in a real family atmosphere when I was missing my own family. I learned how to raise a child and made relationships with other mothers.”

“Every time I feel distressed, alienated and miss my family, I go [to Family Place]. They give me love and attention and time.”

“I feel joy every time I enter the building. It means a lot to me, it is the place where I found support and encouragement and I learned the skills of life.”

Refugee Programs

The Richmond Early Years Bridging Program supports refugee families living in Richmond with at least one child birth to 6 years of age. The Bridging program assists families with their social, emotional, settlement and parenting needs.


School Readiness

School readiness is an integral part every   drop-in session. Children participating in school readiness and early literacy programs develop the social, emotional and intellectual skills to ensure a smooth transition to kindergarten.

Find out about our Play, Learn, Get Ready for School drop-in program for families attending the Richmond Food Bank.

Peer Support Training Program

The Parent Connections program is comprised of an 8-week training course, program practicums and ongoing opportunities to participate as a Peer Mentor at Richmond Family Place.


We are looking for talented, passionate and committed individuals to volunteer 5-7hrs/month on the Board of Directors.

Go to the Volunteers page for more information.

Richmond Kids

Richmond Kids is the online home of the Richmond Early Years Centre where you will find an events calendar, information, maps and links to early years programs including services and groups.
