My daughter has developed and produced a line of fragrance-free, colour-free, body friendly, natural skin, hair and body products. She also makes her own soap and laundry detergent, and household cleaning products. All of the products are made with environmental and sensitive people in mind. Please check out her website.
Camp Alexandra has been a longstanding family support service for families of our area. They are located in Crescent Beach. There are tons of programs that can be of benefit to many different individuals and families.
Options has many programs for supporting many people with various needs in Surrey. They operate the Healthiest Babies Possible groups who have "lunch clubs" for pregnant women. They also have referral and subsidy information for childcare. They are also very active in supporting familes who are new to Canada. There are "criteria" for joining some of their programs. I have found them to always be knowlegeable and helpful.
