HOTNE Family Centre

Aspen’s Heart of the North East Family Centre (HOTNE) offers a wide range of programs for individuals, parents and families living in northeast Calgary. From one-on-one support and parenting workshops to group skill-building and developmental resources for children, our goal is to improve the overall wellbeing of families in northeast Calgary.

Programs and services provided at HOTNE include:

  • One-on-one support for parents and caregivers
  • Triple P Positive Parenting Program classes
  • Cross-cultural parenting classes
  • Indigenous parenting programs
  • Skill-building workshops
  • Ages and Stages assessments
  • Play-based learning for children
  • Family field trips
  • Information and resource referrals

*Program Update*:

As of March 31, 2020, the Ministry of Children’s Services will be ending contracts with 300 organizations across the province that offer prevention and early-intervention services such as Parent Link Centres, home visitation services and Community/Family Resource Centres. The Ministry has offered an exciting opportunity that will support stream-lining services for families in Alberta communities. The Family Resource Networks will be introduced April 1, 2020, replacing Parent Link Centres, home visitation programs and family resource centres and will continue providing programs and services to children, youth and families.

Aspen has been invited to submit a proposal to be a part of the new Family Resource Network. Aspen will be applying to be a part of the new Family Resource Network, which will continue to deliver high quality programming for families with children ages 0-18. This change will ideally allow Aspen, and other organizations in the sector, to better serve Albertans no matter which community they live in.

Aspen is optimistic for the future Family Resource Network and is using this as an opportunity to leverage the passion and commitment that Aspen’s services have contributed in the community over the years and moving forward to new possibilities in this exciting direction. For the time being our Parent Link Centres and Family Resource Centres (HOSC & HOTNE) will be open and running programming. Organizations will be notified with a final decision in March of 2020 and we will continue to provide updates as we receive them.

Thank you,

Team Aspen
