The pandemic has disrupted some of our services, so we’ve rebuilt our homepage to provide you with easy access to information about the support, programs, and resources available to you.

Get Support

We serve individuals and families from all faiths and cultures and are guided by compassion and reverence for all of humanity. We welcome anyone who would benefit from our supports—regardless of where they come from, who they choose to love, how much money they have, or where they go to pray. Read more about who we serve.

Rapid Access Counselling

From the pandemic to the financial market, and even working from home, all of us are under immense stress. We are here for you in the midst of that. Our counselling sessions are delivered using online video conferencing, so you can stay home and stay well.

Find information and bookings at booksinglesession.cfs-ab.org/. You can also book through our Engagement & Intake team at 403.205.5294 or intake@cfs-ab.org.

Let us support you. Book now!
