Building Connections, Transforming Lives.
Each year McMan Calgary & Area impacts 2700 individuals and families. We measure our work in the lives that are changed, by families and individuals who are stronger, more resilient, and connected to one another.
McMan balances the provision of adaptive, individualized professional services with helping individuals and families strengthen their relationship skills and connections to family, friends and communities.
Our services are grounded in evidence-based practice and our impact in the lives of the children, youth and families we serve. We measure our impact through three core outcomes areas:
The following are highlights of our impact in the past year:
My worker hasn’t been just another talking head who makes me feel alone. She’s been a rock in the midst of a storm. The empathy and help have been great.
The program helped me get out of bad situations and learn new skills.
Our worker was amazing at bringing our family together and helped us all grow so we could improve our family relationships.
Our family and child's teachers and Family Liason worker have all noticed significant changes in his behavior, attitude and outlook on life. We are so grateful for all the help provided.
My worker was very supportive and understanding and respecting my opinions. She was readily available when I needed her with educated/experienced help. There were difficult times, and she was a saving grace at these times. Without Kinnections I'm not sure how I would have made it through.
I like how I felt safe to express myself in this environment.
The support and availability of the staff is incredible and helps dramatically with my skills and peace of mind while allowing me to maintain independence.
The program has been so beneficial to creating the beauty of the life I have today. 2.5 years ago I was a struggling addict barely able to keep my head above water, I had lost my children and was losing faith I had anything left to live for. Today I am almost 2 years sober, I have both of my children back home permanently for the past year, I now live in my own home soon am dependent on just my own income. But most of all, I am secure and confident in who I am today.
If I had not come to group, I wouldn't have started talking to one of the girls in group. I was able to make a new friend because of RESTART
