Helping Organisations

Here to Help You!

Asking for help is one of the most valuable lessons we can learn as parents and caregivers.  Raising children is one of the hardest and most important jobs in the world.  When we ask for help, we find resources and specialists who can help. We have a chance to partake in the wisdom of those around us.  Asking for help creates a stronger sense of community, grows our circle of caring, and models for our children that asking for help is a healthy and strong thing to do.  Powell River services, agencies and community people are here when you need us.
