Our Education Services offer classes related to three of The Family Centre's areas of focus: that parents will be better equipped to raise healthy children, individuals will build the understanding and skills required to develop strong and healthy relationships, and that individuals, families, and institutions will gain the knowledge needed to effectively navigate through change.
The Family Centre is a member of the only national Employee Assistance Program (EAP) structured as a social enterprise. Our EAP mission is to promote resilient workplaces, inspire healthy families, and to build strong, thriving communities. We are uniquely positioned to support workplace health and wellness through our lens of “healthy families in healthy communities”.
Our goal is to offer easy-to-access counselling services. That is why counselling is available on a drop-in basis, and the first session is always free. To remove financial barriers, subsidies are available for follow-up sessions. We adjusted to the COVID-19 pandemic by offering counselling sessions also online.
Our counselling services are funded by fees scaled to the income of clients, donors, and funders; The City of Edmonton - Family and Community Support Services and United Way of the Alberta Capital Region.
100% of profits generated go toward supporting mental health and community-based programming
The Family Centre acknowledges that we are on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional meeting ground, gathering place, and traveling route for the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis, Dene, and Nakota Sioux. We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.
