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.
