Miriam Foster (249x300).jpg(CNS): The community affairs ministry has appointed Miriam Foster as the Family Resource Centre’s (FRC) Programme Coordinator. Foster joined the then Women’s Resource Centre (WRC) six years ago as an Administration Intake Officer. In 2009, WRC joined the National Parenting Programme (NPP) and the Young Parents Programme (YPP) to become the Family Resource Centre. Since then she has worked as a Programme Officer and Programme Facilitator and has been acting as the Programme Coordinator since August. Foster initiated the first celebration of International Men’s Day Celebration in Cayman which focused on improving male health while promoting gender equality.

In celebration of Honouring Women’s Month in March, she and her team is currently busy planning the various activities outlined for the month; including a revamped International Women’s Day Celebration that will be on the 8 March at Camana Bay from 6-8pm. It will feature music, competitions and a silent auction.

“I am honoured to be working with a great team and be able to aid in improving the lives of families in the community,” said Foster who encourages families to attend the free parenting sessions which are held on the third Wednesday of every month and get to know the diverse programming that FRC offers.

She strongly believes in developing programming that meets the needs of the community and constantly looking for ways to stay relevant.

“Government is really excited to have Miriam on board with us,” said Minister Mike Adam. “I am confident that with her wealth of knowledge, commitment and hard work, she will continue to be a valuable asset to our islands, and in particular, many families.”
