Family Support

The Family Support Team offers real help rooted in lived experience.

We work with you to explore options, find community resources, apply for FSCD, use our database, and more.

We empower families and professionals and help you make the best decisions for your family, your children, your clients, and your community.

Transition Services

The Transition Team guides families who care for youth who are transitioning into adulthood.

They have helped hundreds of families easily and accurately complete Guardianship, Trusteeship, PDD, and AISH applications.

They provide accurate and useful information, and excellent service so families feel less stressed and more confident when their youth enter adulthood.

Transition to Adulthood workshops are available to families and professionals in digital format.

These engaging workshops help families better understand the Transition to Adulthood process, and learn more about PDD, AISH, Guardianship, and Trusteeship.

Natural/Peer Support

Children’s Link recognizes that parent-to-parent supports are vital for the well-being of caregivers of children, youth, and adults with disabilities. Peer and natural supports relationships are as important to address as our physical needs.

Connections with others provide a sense of identity, belonging, inclusion, support, and encouragement.

Peer and natural supports are needed during all stages of our lives but may be most important during times of diffculty, transition, or isolation.

Children’s Link believes that we’re better together and we are here to help you find your people!

Although Children’s Link is no longer hosting parent support groups through our agency, we are happy to LINK you to the many resources and groups that are meeting across Alberta. We also have some limited room in our Calgary office that we are calling the Caring Connections Community Space.

If you are interested in organizing/leading/facilitating a group
(for parents of children with a disability) please contact us and we would be happy to discuss possibilities and share some helpful resources with you!

Please email sandra.cicman@childrenslink.ca or call 403-230-9158 ext. 104 for more information.

Be sure to check out our Events page to find a calendar of community events that you can explore.

There are fun times ahead! Peer and natural supports are all around you. Someone is waiting to meet you and to share, learn, and laugh. We encourage connection and would love to help you get LINKed!
