New Services for Families

As of July 2017, FAIR’s Family Services team will be offering a wider variety of programs.

Although this has meant an end to the Bright Beginnings program, we are excited to have the opportunity to offer a broad range of groups and individual services which will better meet the diverse needs of families in the Greater Trail area.  Is there something you’d like to see offered?  Let us know…we welcome your feedback.  Just give us a call at our Main Office and check back here often to see what’s new!
