Family & Community Support

UP provides services for children, youth, and adults to either remain in the family home or re-integrate with their families and community.

Family integration & community support services

The Bridges program is offered in partnership with Edmonton Area Child and Family Services (Child Intervention/Child Protection Services). It focuses on the partnership of Unlimited Potential and Family Services working collaboratively with children, youth, and families to ensure safety, wellbeing, and helping build individual support networks in their own communities. The program also helps transition older youth in care to independence. Our areas of service are West Central, St Albert and Spruce Grove and the surrounding areas.

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) services

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a medical diagnosis that describes a range of lifelong disabilities resulting from prenatal exposure to alcohol. UP has programs for men, women, and children.

For adults, we have two Open Arms programs. One program is for men diagnosed with or suspected of having FASD, and the second program is for mothers living with FASD.

We also have FASD-focused group care available for children.

Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge Treaty 6 territory—the traditional and ancestral territory of the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux , Nakota Sioux and Métis Peoples. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands since time immemorial. We respect their histories, languages, and cultures whose presence continues to enrich our community. We are grateful for the traditional Elders and Knowledge Keepers who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we are visiting and striving to live in harmony with.
