Mission Statement

To support lone parent families become less vulnerable, less socially isolated, more independent and more confident.


The program has been in operation since 1995. All programs are free of charge and funded through the City of Calgary Family and Community Support Services (FCSS).

We are centrally located in the Huntington Hills Community Centre. Our building is easily accessible by transit and car. There is ample free parking in our parking lot and on the street.

Lone Parents can contact us directly or be referred by an outside agency. There are no income restriction to register.

The Building Strong Lone Parent Families program can provide information, individual/peer support, resources, referrals, and Triple P parent coaching.

We can provide support to all families where one care-giver is raising or will be raising a child under 18 years. This can include:

  • Newly separated parents
  • Expectant parents
  • Families that are new to Calgary
  • Parents that are in the process of reunification with their children
  • A Parent who has or is in the process of adopting a child
  • A Grandparent or other family member raising a child

Parents are welcome register in the workshop series and receive individual support if they choose.
