Mission Statement: We are a non-profit facility responsible for bringing health and well-being programs to the residents of New Ross and surrounding areas. Our goal is to make the New Ross area a comfortable, well-serviced community with many of the amenities provided in larger areas.

History: The New Ross Family Resource Center was established in March of 1997, and is located in the “Old School” in the community of New Ross. We are a non-profit organization designed to promote the health and well-being of families residing in the New Ross area. We have developed a wide range of community-based programs and services, which acknowledge the needs of the people of New Ross, reducing the feeling of isolation and providing an atmosphere where all are welcome. We provide office space for a variety of other services that also work to support our community.

Current COVID-19 Protocols – Updated October 2021

The Government of Nova Scotia has deemed Family Resources Centres as “essential services”. Therefore, proof of vaccination is not required at this time for members of the community who are coming into our building for any of our programs or services.

We ask that everyone who enters our building please wear their mask (non-medical is fine), and please stop and sanitize at our sanitization stations when you enter our building. We also ask that you practice 6-feet social distancing from people not in your household.
