Lone Parent Program

MISSION STATEMENT

“To support lone parent families and help them become less vulnerable, less socially isolated, more independent and more confident.”

ABOUT US

The program has been in operation since 1995. All programs are free of charge and funded through the City of Calgary Family and Community Support Services (FCSS).  We are centrally located in the Huntington Hills Community Centre. Our building is easily accessible by transit and car. Lone Parents can contact us directly or be referred by an outside agency. There are no income restrictions to register.

The Building Strong Lone Parent Families program can provide information, individual/peer support, resources, referrals, and Triple P parent coaching. We can provide support to all families where one care-giver is raising or will be raising a child under 18 years. This can include:

  • Newly separated parent
  • Expectant parents
  • Families that are new to Calgary
  • Parents that are in the process of reunification with their children
  • A Parent who has or is in the process of adopting a child
  • A Grandparent or other family member raising a child
  • Parents are welcome to register in the workshop series and receive individual support if they choose.
