Land Acknowledgement

Located on the traditional lands of the Blackfoot Confederacy, Lethbridge Family Services is committed to honouring the land from a place of knowing. We honour the Siksikaitsitapi as both the traditional and current Land Keepers of this area, and we welcome all First Nations, Métis, Inuit and non-Indigenous peoples who call Blackfoot territory their home.

What We Do

Lethbridge Family Services provides services through our core departments of Counselling, Outreach, & Education Services, DaCapo Disability Services, Homes Services and Immigrant Services. The administrative support functions of Advancement & Communications, Business Development, Finance, IT, and Human Resources work with these departments to support their programming needs. 
DaCapo is an Italian "musical" term that means to "repeat from the beginning". We assist children and adults with disabilities (developmental, FASD and brain injury) to develop skills and relationships that enhance their well-being, independence, and connectivity to the community.
We ensure that regardless of language or cultural barriers, people who arrive in Canada are able to use their existing skills, learn new ones, and participate actively in all aspects of Canadian life. We provide a welcoming environment where newcomers and their families can make Lethbridge their home. We offer programs and services in more than 50 languages.
Our Certified Health Care Aides provide in-home support to enable seniors, individuals with physical disabilities, and the acute, chronically and/or terminally ill to remain in their preferred living environment for as long as possible. 
We provide services to those affected by family violence, sexual assault, grief and loss, transitional issues and other health and wellness concerns. Our team provides a supportive and welcoming environment that invites nourishing, transformational experience. All services offer financial subsidies and are provided by credentials.
