Family Futures Resource Network is a community-based non-profit organization whose mission is to educate, support and build on the strengths of families. With over 20 years of experience, the agency provides prevention and early intervention programs and services. The programs and services support children 0–18 years of age and their caregivers. We work with families from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Services offered are strength-based with a focus on child development, parent education, family support, community connections, and home visitation. In addition, the agency is a network of sites embedded within the Edmonton community.
Family Futures Resource Network’s programs and services emphasize that families are their own greatest asset. The agency has worked tirelessly to do this and to become a reliable resource offering timeless, evidence-based programs and services. However, this is also balanced with the continuous development of new, innovative programs and services. Above all, the agency remains responsive to the ever-changing and increasingly complex needs of children, youth, and families.
Participants can access most programs at no-cost.
Family Futures Resource Network has been selected as the Hub for Southwest and Southeast Edmonton under the provincial government’s new Family Resource Network model. In addition, the agency has also selected to provide additional Home Visitation services in West Edmonton. We will also be working with other local agencies to provide programs and services to the residents of Edmonton to build a strong community.
Therefore, Family Futures Resource Network will deliver prevention and early intervention services and supports through a provincial network of community-based service providers.
Supports and services will focus on strengthening parenting and caregiving knowledge; social support; coping and problem-solving skills; access to other community supports and resources; improving child and youth development; building resiliency, and lastly fostering well-being. For instance, examples may include in-home visitation, parenting support and coaching, child and youth programs, and early childhood development programs focusing on early literacy and play. As Alberta faces both a pandemic and an economic crisis, support to families is critical.
We are proud to announce our partners as designated spokes within the new Family Resource Network.
We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the traditional territories of the Indigenous peoples of the Treaty 6 region and the Métis Settlements and Métis Nation of Alberta, Regions 2, 3 and 4. We respect the histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Metis, Inuit, and all First Peoples of Canada, whose presence continues to enrich our community.

I just wanted to send you a quick message to share our gratitude for your programming. My son and I have joined a few different zoom groups to reduce the isolation and loneliness of maternity leave during a pandemic. Yours is our favourite! We hope that we can see you again in another program in the future.
The most significant learning gaining by attending all of these programs has been the importance of quality interaction/play with my daughter. FFRN introduced and supported incredible educational, sensory, and child development topics in an affordable, creative and engaging setting. As a result, I feel more confident in providing my daughter with patient, sensitive, and age appropriate learning at home. Her cognitive and social development has been described as very advanced by our doctor, this is a direct correlation of the quality programs offered by FFRN.
