Family Matters COVID-19 Update

Dear Families of Family Matters Programming and Family Home Day Cares: 
With the present situation regarding COVID-19 and the recommendations made by both our provincial and federal government, Family Matters and Family Matters Family Home Day Care agency will be practicing social distancing and self-isolation by working from home until further notice.We understand that families will be in need at this time and so long as we are permitted we will do our best to help you out. If you require assistance please send a message to our Facebook page and we will do our best to assist you.
With regards to Family Matters Family Home Day Care Agency’s family home day cares they are mandated to close their operations as of Tuesday, March 17th. If you have any questions regarding the closure, how it will effect your families or your care provider please email your care providers consultant and they will walk you through what they know at this time. 
This is a time for us to show one another compassion and patience. The world is in crisis and we have to work together to prevent the spread of this virus. Do what you can, stay home if possible, check in on a neighbour, offer to shop for the elderly and high risk, anything you can to show the world humanity is not lost. 
The staff and board of Family Matter wish you health and safety during these uncertain times and look forward to providing out programs for you again soon.
