Family Resource Network Programs


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!

You’ll receive support with parenting skills, learn information and strategies to support optimal child development, gain skills for problem-solving, improve and fortify family relationships and build strengths to reach your goals. A Home Visitor will assess your child and help you identify your family’s needs and objectives, then meet weekly with you, all in the convenience of your home. We can also connect you to community resources when required.

If you are looking for resources and support around parenting and child development, and making connections within your community - WE ARE HERE!

At the Family Resource Network we are committed to fostering healthy families, and supporting communities. Contact us to learn more about our service and discuss if it’s right for you and your family. We look forward to meeting you!
