COVID-19 response

Service through the new Family Resource Networks will be limited to supports delivered by phone or over the internet. This is intended to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and protect the safety of children, parents/guardians and staff.

Overview

Provincial Family Resource Networks (FRNs) deliver high quality prevention and early intervention services and supports for children aged 0 to 18.

Networks provide a range of services and supports that focus on strengthening parenting and caregiving knowledge, social support, coping and problem-solving skills, access to community supports and resources, improving child and youth development, building resiliency and fostering well-being.

Through a ‘hub and spoke’ model of service delivery, Networks (hubs) will coordinate the prevention and early intervention services in all geographic areas and in various cultural communities across the province – either directly or through collaborative partnerships with qualified service agencies or providers (spokes).

In compliance with recommendations from Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, service provision to Albertans through the new Provincial FRNs will be limited to supports that can be delivered by phone or over the internet. This decision has been made to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and protect the safety of children, parents/guardians and staff.

As the situation continues to evolve, we will be updating information with regard to the provision of Provincial FRN services and supports in Alberta. Please check back frequently.
