The Cowichan Valley Regional District Board of Directors were all extremely supportive of the work the Children and Family Council does within the community.
Council Chairperson Mary Dolan spoke to the board about the group’s goals, including supporting a plan for publicly funded early childhood education and childcare. Dolan says one of the main issues that families and children face in the Cowichan Valley is homelessness.
Dolan says the Children and Family Council is an organized voice for children and families in the Cowichan Valley. They aim to support children from birth to 12 years old so they can thrive and grow in a supportive community.
