Children’s Link is known and valued for offering resources, information, connections and hope to families and professionals in the disability community. Children’s Link is staffed by a dedicated team, many of whom have lived experience with disability. Our digital platform contains more than 1,000 community resources, enabling us to provide people with a comprehensive variety of service and support options. Children’s Link is a community collaborator, resource connector, family champion and compassionate supporter at a time of crisis and uncertainty. Through our one-on-one support, workshops, and our extensive virtual support for families and professionals we connect with more than 35,000 Albertans per year.

We believe in bringing together families, agencies, and professionals to offer expertise, promote choice, enhance strengths, and hope to families and professionals who care for and work with children and youth with disabilities. We help families adapt and thrive by providing resources, information, and parent-to-parent connections. We are committed to the development of a community where families of children with special needs and those who serve them are informed, supported, and valued.

Impact is felt at both the individual and community level.
