The Governments of Alberta and Canada have shared additional information and measures to reduce risks to exposure and transmission of the Covid-19 virus. Family Ties Association is supportive of these measures and responding daily to new information as it becomes available. Our priority is the safety and well-being of the families and youth we serve as well as our employees.

Until further notice, the following will continue:

  • We are limiting the Face to Face contact currently for most programs. There will still be support for most family’s and individuals over the phone or via video calls.
  • FSCD Program Supervisors and/or staff will maintain contact with all the families and clients to assess their needs and respond accordingly based on each individual situation. Please connect with your staff or the supervisor if you have any questions or concerns.
  • River House PSH will continue with increased risk mitigation and limiting resident exposures.
  • The office will continue to be open by phone, email or video only. The office continues to be closed to visitors and clients. As much as possible, staff will be working remotely.
  • We are developing additional resources to provide support and guidance to children, youth and families, you will receive these through your workers and their supervisors.
  • All Training, Group Programs and Camps for clients and employees are cancelled.
We are committed to continue reviewing and responding to the Covid-19 situation. Your patience and support are most appreciated during this unprecedented time. Take care of yourself and your family.
