Peterborough Families are Strong

Network Contact: Linda Doran Viscardis

Peterborough Families Are Strong is a group that is living into its name. There are hundreds of families who are members of the Facebook Group. Only a handful of family members engage with any gatherings. This group, as it exists currently, is barely a shadow of the once strong network called PROSPECTS. At this time, the members are passive members of a Facebook group.
