Director | President
Hello, my name is Shonna Bell. I am the Family Program Coordinator at the Fernwood Community Centre (Fernwood NRG) in Victoria, BC. I have been with the organization since 2009. At the time I was hired on as an ECEA and my first role outside of Child Care was the CAPC drop-in. Since then I have completed my ECE, done the Family Resource Program certification, completed a post degree certificate in volunteer and Non-Profit Management, become the coordinator of our Best Babies program and had my own baby. My three year old is my greatest joy, she is fire (a red head and a Gemini). As a single mother I am passionate about supporting and advocating for how hard it can be pregnant and parenting people. I believe in connecting people to community and helping them navigate systems. I also find that everyone that I work with has something to teach me.
