FAmily Futures Resource Network and a group of agencies partnered to start The Coordinated Youth Response in Edmonton to better help youth aged 15 to 24 during the pandemic. The initiative is about improving the way services are provided to youth. By working together we can better help youth navigate support services. A coordinated response means youth will only have to share their personal information once and with their consent and it will be shared with the other relevant agencies participating in the Coordinated Youth Response. Call or Text 211 to get help – or walk into a youth agency.
Contact Family Futures Resource Network and we can coordinate with Connected Supports that provide: Youth Programming; Pregnancy Services, Addictions Services; Mental Health; Safe Spaces and more.
