Breathe provides a safe space for parents to practice self-care while engaging in peer-support. It is open to participants spanning the pre-natal to grandparent stages. Trained volunteers provide safe and stimulating childminding in a nearby room to allow parents/caregivers to engage in a variety of activities. Such activities span the emotional, spiritual, intellectual and physical notions of the individual and range from crafting, cooking classes, workshops, and outings which allow parents/caregivers to receive peer-support. Such support serves to improve the lives of children by promoting healthy living for parents/caregivers to benefit the entire family.

Breathe takes place on Monday evenings from 5-7pm, usually at First Light headquarters – 716 Water Street (unless otherwise specified).
