Support for Individuals of Child Bearing Age
The program works with Indigenous individuals 16 and over who are at risk of delivering a baby with FASD.
The program is funded by the South Alberta FASD Network. There are no costs associated with the program.
We help participants connect with their community to help them cope with any challenges they face.
