The Waterloo Region Crime Prevention Council recognizes that tremendous stress and anxiety that our current health crisis has placed upon families. It is a time for defining a new normal within each household for the next while in order for us to flatten the curve. In that spirit, we are passing along resources pulled together by F&CS for families. Please share these with your community.
