Lethbridge School Division – Family Support Program



The Family Support Program is an early intervention program within schools in Lethbridge School Division. The intent of this program is to support parents and families in accessing community resources that will assist families in strengthening their resiliency, assist in further developing a families independence and develop an awareness of resources. There is no criteria for eligibility of services. Families can be referred to the program through other professionals, self referral or peer referral. Support is tailored to each families individual need. The Family Support Program serves as a vital part of the Wellness Teams at all schools. Their unique ability to assist families allows schools the ability to support the child across all seven domains of well-being (Well-Being and Resiliency Framework, 2019), validating the families significance for a child to have their needs met and be healthy, happy and successful across environments. Family Support Workers are not counsellors; they are allies to families that reduce barriers in accessing further community or cultural supports. Contact : 403-380-5382
