The Fairview United Family Resource Centre known as the Fairview Family Centre is a community hub in Fairview, Nova Scotia. Fairview is located in the urban core of Halifax and considered the most diverse neighbourhood east of Montreal. The population is approximately 12,000 and the community has many small/medium size businesses, apartment buildings and single family homes. The centre began in 1986 and is a non-profit organization and registered charity. In 2015 the centre moved from 3524 Dutch Village Road to their own facility at 6 Titus Street. The centre has grown to offer a variety of programs and supports for all ages. All programs and services are FREE of charge.
The goal is to provide EDUCATION, OPPORTUNITIES AND SUPPORT to the community. The centre offers community based, participant lead programs in a safe and welcoming environment. We know transportation, language barriers and childcare can be a challenge to access services. That is why the centre offers on-site childcare, help with transportation and uses translators if needed. We want to remove the barriers so everyone can access the services offered.
Some of our programs include advocacy and referrals, health and wellness programs, youth programs, pre-school programs, one on one adult skill development opportunities, health and safety programs, community meals, home based support programs, adult/senior programs , family interaction programs and much more. Please see under programs and services for a more detailed list.
