We’re seeking funding for a part-time salary for our lead facilitator and program coordinator, as well as materials to operate our annual programs. This allows us to provide our services and programs, which help:
– children at community events providing support to vulnerable populations find joy and regulate emotions,
– Indigenous parents learn Blackfoot while supporting their children’s healthy brain development, and
– promote conversations on our local mental health ecosystem and mental health literacy outside of a crisis or referral.
We have a working partnership with Google for NonProfits and Google Ads, researching and developing how Calgarians talk about mental health online (what terms are they searching for?), as well as are part of the Family Engagement in Research Winter Cohort to improve how we can frame our events to capture more participatory research data.
Currently, we are volunteer-run and self-fund the activities, which is not a sustainable path.
