Millwoods Family Resource Centre Society

Family Futures Resource Network

Family Futures Resource Network provides information, education and support to individuals, parents and families. We are comprised of two designated Parent Link Centres, and are the only family resource centre in south Edmonton, that offers this range of services and programs. We are a network of programming sites embedded within the communities we serve. We also utilize existing community and public buildings whenever we can to deliver services and programs that meet the needs of the community, exactly where they are needed.

The objectives of a Parent Link Centre, established by Alberta Children’s Services are to:

• Support parents in their role as their children’s first and most influential teachers.

• Link parenting programs and services through a province-wide network that promotes excellence.

• Facilitate the sharing of resources
