On Friday, May 24th, the New Beginnings Young Parent Program participants gathered to thank the community partners who helped them graduate at the annual Thank You Tea.

Since the program began in 1990, more than 1000 parents have graduated high school. There were seven graduates in this year’s class.

New Beginnings is a partnership between the Abbotsford School District, Ministry of Children and Family Development, and Archway Community Services.

A highlight of the event is the presentation of quilts for the graduates’ children donated by the Abbotsford Quilters Guild.

“The quilts are an amazing way to commemorate the students’ time here at New Beginnings. The amount of work that has gone into each quilt does not go unnoticed and truly we are so grateful to be connected to the Abbotsford Quilters Guild,” says Bailey Rowan, Parent Support Worker at New Beginnings. “Thank you to each person who helps create these works of art.”
