Family Centre is excited to announce that we are continuing to learn, grow and serve our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Family Centre is taking a leadership role by working with the City of Lethbridge emergency pandemic response and understands what a difficult and challenging time this is for everyone in our community; especially parents. That is why since March 15th, 2020 we have developed some new and innovative program delivery options, to ensure continuity of our services. Here is a list of what we are currently offering clients:
Information & Referral Services - call us if you have any questions or concerns and we will support you to connect with the services you need within our community (call 403-320-4232).
Play and Stay Early Childhood Education Programs - are available online through Family Centre’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/lethbridgefamilycentre and Family Centre's website: www.famcentre.ca
Parent Support Services - via Zoom sessions, skype, and over the phone (call 403-320-4232) Call into our trained Parent Educators for advise and support for handling a variety of situations involving children of all ages.
Family Support Services - via Zoom sessions and online videos on Facebook and Family Centre's website. We have certified counsellors in these sessions demonstrating techniques on dealing with a variety of mental health concerns including, anxiety, loneliness and depression while supporting clients with live Q & A opportunities.

How can you help us continue to provide these important services to families?
We are seeking funds for COVID-19 Tech Enhancements so that our dedicated staff members can practice self isolation; keeping themselves, our clients and their families safe while still being able to provide quality programs and services. During the first 2 weeks of online programming we had seen over 226 viewers in our zoom sessions and we had over 15,000 views of our offerings on our social media pages!
Your generous support today will go towards:
-working from home tech equipment for our staff
-online service delivery costs
With your help and the help of other dedicated donors, we know that we will be able to continue to offer these flexible services to our community members this Spring, while we deal with COVID-19 and then after that; for many years to come.
Thank you for your support of Southwestern Alberta families!
