FAMILY ZONE

The program runs every Wednesday, and Thursday from 4:00PM-6:00PM.

One of the top 4 contributing factors to homelessness is the break-down of family. Family Zone is a program that helps build and foster stronger relationships between vulnerable parents and their children. Your support allows Knights Table to nurture relationships with families who are facing difficult times. Food bank families participate with their children in a variety of family building activities, life skills and educational workshops. Topics such as self-esteem, bullying, discipline, and positive parenting are discussed.
Designed to encourage the development of healthy life skills for at-risk children, Knights Table offers the programs free-of-charge, thanks to the generosity of caring donors who are helping to create brighter futures for children living in poverty.
