The Keeping In Touch eNewsletter is produced by Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House with funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada. This resource has been developed for the Community Action Program for Children (CAPC), Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program (CPNP) and Aboriginal Head Start (AHS) programs and staff.
The Aboriginal Head Start in Urban and Northern Communities (AHSUNC) Program is a community-based children’s program delivered by the Public Health Agency of Canada. AHSUNC focuses on early childhood development (ECD) for First Nations, Inuit and Métis children and their families living off-reserve.
The program began in 1995 and has had a major impact on the children, families and communities that have participated. It was established to support the spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical development of Aboriginal children, while supporting their parents and guardians as their primary teachers. It addresses general health concerns in vulnerable populations and works to benefit the health, well being and social development of Aboriginal children.
The Community Action Program for Children (CAPC) is a community-based children’s program delivered by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). It was established in 1993 and is jointly managed with the provinces and territories.
For more than 15 years, CAPC has provided long term funding to community groups and coalitions across Canada to develop programs that promote the healthy development of young children (0-six years). Through CAPC, supports and activities are made available to children and their families facing challenging life circumstances.
The Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program (CPNP) is a community-based program delivered through the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).
For more than ten years, CPNP has helped communities to promote public health and provide support to improve the health and well being of pregnant women, new mothers and babies facing challenging life circumstances.
