At Kindred Connections Society (Kindred), we're convinced the key to living well is healthy relationships with self, family, and others. But relationships are complicated and sometimes we find ourselves in vulnerable places, disconnected from those who matter most.
Kindred's purpose is to realize the power of human connection, and it shapes everything we do. Whether nuclear or chosen, family is the most important relationship in a person's life. So, we invest in the special bond between children and those that care for them. We provide road maps toward healing when essential relationships are ruptured. And we understand that accessing timely mental health support can inspire confidence with self and others. Healthy human connection is possible, and together we can realize it.
Our programs and services reduce social isolation by providing supports and preventative programs to vulnerable Calgarians experiencing, or likely to experience, barriers to connection: relationship and family challenges, emotional or mental health challenges, early parenthood and lone parenthood, a past or current experience of abuse and/or trauma, lack of interpersonal and social skills, limited social supports, and other root causes of disconnection associated with low parent/child attachment in early childhood.
The programs' intended impact is to treat each person served as unique, recognizing the interplay between 3 critical conditions for connection: strong relationships between children and caregivers, healing for and from ruptured relationships, and capacity and confidence in relationship with self and others.
Volunteers participate in the variety of programs we offer by engaging meaningfully with the people we serve or in activities that contribute to the success of a program. This ranges from child engagement, co-facilitation, academic and career development to even gardening and administrative tasks.
