The dream of a family resource centre in Steinbach began many years ago with a group of a few committed community members. They wanted to provide a safe place where all families could be helped. Steinbach Family Resource Centre was formerly known as Anna's House which was named after Dr. Anna Schilstra, who was Steinbach's first female doctor in the early 1900's. Dr. Anna Schilstra specialized in women's health, pregnancy and childbirth. She was a prominent member and involved in the community and known for her caring and nurturing spirit. We are carrying on the tradition of community connection and caring at Steinbach Family Resource Centre, by making unique resources available and welcoming all families in the Southeast region of Manitoba to Steinbach Family Resource Centre.
Board of Directors
While many of the "founders" of Steinbach Family Resource Centre have moved on, our current volunteer Board of Directors is made up of committed men and women who represent the community that we serve. We are fortunate to have community members who give of their time and resources to make our centre the best it can be. They meet monthly to discuss strategic planning, program development, emerging community needs and centre finances. Board members represent Steinbach Family Resource Centre at community events and provide support and guidance to the staff at the centre. If you are interested in becoming a board member please contact us.
