How can we help?

Bringing Syrians Home

It’s time to talk about bringing Syrians Home to Lethbridge because they have arrived with more on the way.   

 As a refugee destination centre, Lethbridge Family Services has been tasked by both the federal and provincial governments to prepare to settle larger numbers of refugees over the coming months.  If we are going to successfully achieve this  challenge, we need to ask community members to think about how they can best assist. As an agency, we are calling on Southern Alberta to help us welcome and support the largest refugee resettlement relocation movement in Alberta and Lethbridge’s history.  This is all towards the goal of bringing 25,000 Syrian governments assisted refugees to Canada.    To date there has been amazing work done by the community and if you would like to see how everyone is supporting the work of LFS, please check out this information package.   

If you have any questions, please contact the Immmigrant Services team at (403) 320-1589 or email refugee.crisis@lfsfamily.ca

DaCapo Program Turns 30!
May 18, 2016
To many people, 30 years does not seem like a long time.  However, when those 30 years are taken in the context of providing essential supports and services to individuals with disabilities, 30 years can be a lifetime of growth, opportunities and successes. This is the story of the DaCapo program at Lethbridge Family Services as they celebrate 30 years of existence within the agency and community.  Originally started as a pilot project for day services, the program has expanded to offer supports and services to individuals with developmental disabilities, brain injuries, and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.  Every year, the program helps close to 300 individuals improve their quality of life and well-being by providing support and education around employment/volunteer opportunities, social and life skills, and community inclusion.  These individuals become contributing members of the community through a variety of partnerships and programs. Since the program was started, over 5 million hours of service have been provided in Southern Alberta through the DaCapo program.

Mission Statement: Lethbridge Family Services is a highly accredited, charitable, human services organization that improves the well-being and quality of life for individuals and families in Southwestern Alberta.
