Family Development Program (FDP)

Helping families build stronger connections!

About The Family Development Program

The Family Development Program provides individualized in-home support for families with children 0-18 years of age to increase their parenting skills and enhance family relationships. We work with families to help them:

  • Learn new parenting strategies
  • Increase their communication skills
  • Build a strong network of connection and support
  • Create a supportive and safe home environment
  • Ensure the healthy development of the children
  • Access community services and resources

The program is free of charge and typically lasts for 3-6 months.

Referrals for the Family Development Program may come from Children Service’s caseworkers, self-referral (parent/caregiver) or professionals.

We serve families throughout Calgary and surrounding areas and have offices in Calgary and Okotoks.

The Family Development Program is funded by the Government of Alberta.
