Making Connections is a school based family support program available in all Lethbridge School District #51 elementary schools. The purpose of the Making Connections program is to ensure that all children, youth and families have equal opportunities for healthy development leading to physical, social and emotional well-being.
Our program model reflects a continuum of service from universal programming, targeted services, and intensive supports to external referrals as required. At all levels of the continuum the focus is on the promotion of the skills and knowledge required for children and families to build on their strengths, address challenges, cope with adversity and increase their capacity to care for themselves and others. This assistance is provided within a school setting, where children spend most of their time and families often seek support.
The Making Connections program is made possible through support from Alberta Health Services, Southwest Child and Family Services Authority, Family and Community Support Services City of Lethbridge and Family Centre.
