Our History

A new name…

Once Mill Woods Family Resource Centre, we are now Family Futures Resource Network, a name that better captures everything that we do and everywhere that we do it, now that we have expanded to help serve the entire southern region of the greater Edmonton community.

How it all started…

Family Futures Resource Network was previously known as the Mill Woods Family Resource Centre, which was created because of a merger between two Mill Woods organizations. The agency operates out of four separate locations, one in south west Edmonton, two in Mill Woods, and one in south east Edmonton; as well as multiple community outreach locations.  

This merger was undertaken to:

  • Improve services to families and children in the community
  • Make the programs more accessible and physically closer to users
  • Meet a need identified by funders for a resource centre in Mill Woods
  • Be in line with governments’ stated preference for greater coordination and merging among programs
  • Increase the profile of the programs
  • Contribute to the agency’s strength and sustainability
  • Create greater synergy and new opportunities

As a result, Mill Woods Family Resource Centre was created and incorporated as a Society in January 2004. Since then, it has continued helping children and families in South Edmonton. Today, as Family Futures Resource Network, we provide information, education, and support to individuals, parents, and families and operates out of four separate locations and many outreach sites. Additionally, space is utilized in existing community and public buildings to deliver services and programs that meet the needs of the community.

Our Funders

Family Futures Resource Network is funded through Alberta Children’s Services, Edmonton and Area Child and Family Services and the City of Edmonton Family and Community Support Services.
