WELCOME
The Okotoks Healthy Family Resource Centre (OHFRC) opened in 2000 and serves residents from Okotoks and surrounding areas including Black Diamond, Turner Valley and the Municipal District of Foothills.

PRINCIPLES:
Quality service:
Each family is unique and entitled to individualized services in their own community. Residents have the ability to determine what services they need and to make decisions that affect them.

Honesty, respect and trust:
Individuals choose to access the Centre and receive services based upon disclosure of their current situation and needs. Confidentiality is maintained.

Recognition:
The wellness and strengths of an individual, family and community are emphasized. Services are provided with an understanding that all individuals may require support at some time in their life and seeking this support is a sign of strength.

Goals:
1. To provide a single, accessible point of entry for families to obtain the supports and resources they require in a safe and accepting environment.
2. To provide a timely intervention, including any education, support or crisis management that would assist families in becoming stronger, more self-reliant and accountable for the decisions that affect them.
3. To improve the accessibility of formal and informal community resources.
