Closer to Home’s West Central Family Resource Centre (WCFRC) offers a coordinated approach to early intervention programs and services in southwest Calgary communities. The Centre collaborates with community partners to deliver programs and services to assist children, youth and families facing stressors and/or crisis situations such as family violence and more.

The Centre also works with newcomers to Canada, providing support and long-term planning to give them a positive start in their new country. It is a place where people are valued and individual differences are celebrated.

“I’ve found many opportunities to learn skills, exchange ideas, share feelings of happiness and sorrow among friends, and to build good friendships.” — Women’s Group Participant
