Didsbury FCSS has recently taken over management of the SASS Program, previously offered through Didsbury Senior Support Services. This intergenerational program offers youth in our community an opportunity to volunteer weekly at either Aspen Ridge Lodge or Bethany Care Centre. This once-weekly hourly commitment reaps enormous benefits for both the youth and the seniors involved. Running from December to May, youth spend their time visiting with the residents and enjoying crafts, games and other fun activities. For more information on the SASS program, please call Didsbury Neighborhood Place at 403-335-8719, or see the information below.

Parent Link is free and open to all parents to drop in and play with their children (Ages 0 – 6 years). Find great toys, parenting books, resources and support for parents. Also includes parenting classes.
Parenting is a life-long learning experience. Our goal is to help parents foster optimal development for all their children including children with disabilities. For program hours, please check the Parent Link website.
