Helping families by providing them with the information they need to support their loved ones.

Our Family Support Program assists families by providing
•resource information
•planning and brainstorming
•crisis support
•mediation amongst stakeholders
•relationship building, and
•individual advocacy supports.
This includes access to our comprehensive Family Resource Library and a highly specialized understanding of the government systems that are available for individuals with intellectual disabilities in Alberta.

Families moving forward together one step at a time

Families Forward is a group facilitated by Gateway Association that consists of families who have a loved one with an intellectual disability. These families want to connect with other families on an on-going basis to support, inform and share their experience and resources with one another. By offering mentorship to one another in areas such as funding, staffing, and employment in relation to their family member, most families are empowered reducing their need for formal government supports. Families Forward also facilitates an on-line community of support for those families who are isolated or prefer connecting in that medium.

Education and Awareness
