North Central Family Support Program

The North Central Family Support Program

We assist families from all backgrounds and cultures, single-parent and two-parent, with children under 18, living in the communities of North Central Calgary, in locating necessary resources. We are located on the lower level of the Huntington Hills Community Centre.  Contact us by phone or email for an intake appointment.  At the intake, we will gather information to help us understand your family needs and determine how best to support you. We aim to assist you in accessing the best services and supports so that your family is healthy and strong. Please note, we are not a crisis agency. If you are in crisis, please contact the Distress Centre at 403.266.HELP (4357).

We welcome all families within our surrounding communities to participate in our free family social connection activities, programs and events. We offer free community education events on a variety of topics, a Lone Parent informational/educational workshop series, monthly Networking Collective for Lone Parents, the weekly GEMS girls empowerment group, the FOCUS for Attention monthly support network for parents of children and youth with ADHD, a weekly social connection Creative Café, a twice-weekly social connection Walking Group, the Healthy Babies program and more! We partner with several community agencies and services to better respond to the needs of families in the communities we serve.

Programs are created based on needs identified within the community and those willing to share their skills and talents. If you have suggestions for activities and programs of interest to you and your children, please let us know. Or, if you have specific skills or talent and would like to volunteer your time providing or instructing, please let us know. Are there educational programs or specific topics or speakers of interest to you?  Or are there social connection programs and activities you would like to participate in? We want to hear from you!

Appointment Times: Please call or email to book an appointment – Tuesday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm. We are not available for appointments on Mondays due to events and programming held on weekends.

Outreach Community Advocates/Partners:

We are working together in partnership with BowWest Community Resource Centre and Aspen Family Services to meet the needs of our single and senior neighbours and families with complex needs, in the ever-expanding North West and North Central Calgary. A community advocate is an onsite weekly, by appointment, to provide outreach, information and basic needs support and referrals for single adults and seniors experiencing economic challenges. Please contact us for more information and to connect to an outreach worker.
