City of Leduc Family Resource Network is here for you
Earlier this year, it was announced that the City of Leduc Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) is a now provincial Family Resource Network (FRN) hub. Under this new model, the City of Leduc’s FRN will provide free programs and services for families and caregivers of children and youth from 0 to 18 years of age. The Family Resource Network aims to support residents by helping them become strong and resilient families through the focus on three core areas: child development and well-being, caregiver capacity building and social connection and supports.
“Programs and services offered by the Family Resource Network will help welcome families into the community and support them as they grow,” says Mayor Bob Young, City of Leduc. “The City of Leduc is home to many young families and it is important to help parents, children and youth learn to navigate through each milestone.”
“Becoming a hub means we can oversee the range of services and supports that focus on strengthening, improving and fostering well-being and resiliency within families in the city,” says Donna Brock, Director, Community and Social Development. “It helps diversify our services provided from our Family and Community Support Services team – we look forward to being able to provide this enhanced level of service to our residents.”
The FRN team has been working through the transition and residents will be seeing some of the following upcoming programs and services:
- Home Alone
- Family Fun Nights
- Rhymes that Bind
- Play Learn Grow
- Parenting support and workshops
- Home Visitation
- and more!
