Family Resource Network Programs
For everyone's safety, our services are delivered by phone and Zoom meetings, with some exceptions, until further notice.
Children’s Cottage Society is excited to offer a service called the Calgary West Family Resource Network. This is a wonderful collaboration of agencies providing a range of free programs for families with children under the age of 18 living in west Calgary.
If you are looking for resources and support around parenting, child development, counselling for you and your family, and to make connections within your community - WE ARE HERE TO HELP!
At the Family Resource Network we are committed to supporting and connecting families to community resources and programs. We look forward to meeting you!
WHO WE SERVE
Families with children age 0-18 years.
Home Visitor support is available as a one-time support session (phone or ZOOM) or when permissible through a weekly visit. Home Visitors can provide support related to child-development matters, referrals to resources, basic needs, and building caregiver capacity.
The capacity for each Home Visitor is approximately 15 to 18 families at any one time depending on the level of complexity. We have three Home Visitors working in the Calgary West Hub.
Okotoks Home Visitation and Cochrane Home Visitation. We are also able to provide this support by phone or Zoom meetings in these two Hub locations. We have one Home Visitor for the Okotoks Hub and one for the Cochrane Hub. All inquiries or referrals are arranged by calling 403 830-3153 or emailing email@example.com.
