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
There are four FFRN Agency Locations:

Cost of Programming
Most of the programs and services are offered at no cost to the participant. Some programs charge a small fee to cover supplies or curriculum.
Volunteers play an important role at Family Futures Resource Network by assisting with group facilitation and support, childcare, special events, and day-to-day operations. They enhance the programs and services provided through their involvement and commitment to the Agency.
Over the last year, Family Futures Resource Network served approximately 3000 children, youth, and adults. Volunteers performed more than 1500 hours of service for the Agency.
Family Futures Resource Network is funded through Alberta Children's Services, Edmonton Region Child and Family Services and the City of Edmonton Family and Community Support Services. Additional funding from foundations, grants and donations from community sponsors help make programs and services possible.
