Pregnant women and new moms will find parking just a little bit easier thanks to designated parking areas around the community. Two of these designated parking spots are just outside the health unit where parking is limited.

The idea was first discussed at a Success by 6 meeting where it was felt to be beneficial to the community to have the downtown core more child and family friendly.

In consultation with Coun. Scott Elliott, the idea took shape. These two spots provide ease of accessibility to programs and services for mothers to be and new mothers with infants and young children.

Success by 6 is a Prince George United Way (PGUW) program for the North Cariboo and Quesnel Child, Youth and Family Network has been under contract with PGUW since 2006 to deliver this program.

Success by 6 is an early child development provincial program dedicated to ensuring children ages 0 – 6 have access to programs which are critical in supporting their healthy growth and development.

It is a partnership which involves the whole community in supporting families to better meet the needs of their children.

The three lead partners of this initiative are the provincial government (Ministry of Children and Family Development), United Way and the Credit Unions of B.C. The Community Table broadens this partnership to include early child development service providers and representatives from the broader community.
