About the McMan Family Resource Network – Okotoks

The McMan Family Resource Network (FRN) is a community hub that provides a range of services and programming for children, youth, and families in Okotoks and surrounding communities.

We provide a welcoming environment and connect individuals with the resources, services, and people they need in the areas of:

  • Social connection and support
  • Caregiver capacity building
  • Child development and well-being

We partner with local organizations to ensure the holistic needs of families are addressed. Our key partners are:

Catholic Family Service who provides single session counselling for children, youth and parents/caregivers.

Children’s Cottage Society who provide Home Visitation Services for parents of children (prenatal to 6 years) in the family home.

The McMan Family Resource Network is funded by the Government of Alberta.
