COVID-19 Update

Saanich Neighbourhood Place is working on its plan for re-opening our facilities and is looking forward to when we can start welcoming families back into our spaces.
Meanwhile, our staff are working remotely, and our Family Support team continues to provide services to families via text, email, phone and Facebook. Please email if you need to connect with an outreach worker. 
Updates and information will be regularly posted here and on our Facebook page over the coming weeks.
