• Pacific Post Partum Support Society - $7,500 to assist in the execution of postpartum support groups which provide a variety of free or low-cost programs for women experiencing a difficult pregnancy or postpartum adjustment, including postpartum depression and anxiety.

• B.C. Family Hearing Resource Society - $5,000 towards upgrading outdated audio and video equipment used in observing counseling sessions, which is vital in assessing and evaluating children’s speech, language, social and communicative abilities.
