Children & Families

children and family services

A collaborative, holistic approach with a focus on family and community

No two families or individuals are alike. Our programs and services for children and families are adaptable to meet the specific needs of every individual we serve. We believe the most sustainable, positive change occurs when families are fully engaged and supported by others in their community. Our programs are designed to build relationships and keep families strong.

How We Can Help

We engage and empower families to address the emotional, social, physical and general health aspects of their lives and help them create a support network that includes family, friends, organizations and members of their community along with other professionals who can help families reach their goals.

When families are in crisis, we can provide short-term services tailored to meet their needs. Sometimes, children and youth are unable to live with their own families and so we provide nurturing and supportive environments until they can return home. We are there for parents and families as they work towards their goals and strive to ensure children have family connections for a great future.

We recognize and value the need for personalized support and services. Our programs are culturally responsive and considerate of the fact that no two families are alike. We support and facilitate connections with First Nation, Metis, Inuit and other home communities and traditions.

Our programs and services are available to families in the privacy of their own homes and in their communities across Alberta and BC.
