North Rocky View Community Links Society (Community Links) is pleased to announce that we have been awarded funding to be a Family Resource Network (FRN) through the Ministry of Children’s Services. This funding allows us to deliver high quality prevention and early intervention services and supports for children and youth, aged 0 to 18 years old and their parents/caregivers.
As a Hub for Airdrie and Area, Community Links is providing the physical centre and is the anchor organization that arranges the delivery of a full array of services, supports, and programing.
