"Through our programs & services, the Eastern Shore Family Resource Association supports children, youth & families, and contributes to the quality of family life in our community."

The Eastern Shore Family Resource Association offers a variety of programs, services and one on one support to meet the needs of families along the Eastern Shore. Historically our programs focused on early childhood development through parent/caregiver and child interactive playgroups, family literacy, school readiness opportunities and parent education workshops. Recently, we have expanded our range of programs and services to include pre-natal families and families with children up to age 16 years.


We presently receive funding from the NS Department of Community Services (DCS) under the Family & Youth Services Division, Capital Health, the Community Health Board and Telus, in addition to donations (monetary & in-kind) from ESFRA families & the Community.
