In support of Métis Albertans impacted by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), we are offering our Bridging Connections program.
FASD is a lifelong condition affecting people exposed to alcohol in the womb. Each person living with FASD has both strengths to be recognized and challenges requiring support.
This program allows us to walk alongside our community and connect them with helpful FASD networks and resources. No one should have to do it alone.
When our community members receive the support they need, they achieve positive outcomes.
OUR BRIDGING CONNECTIONS TEAM HELPS BY:
- Providing supports and advocacy before, during, and after assessment
- Linking Métis Albertans with cultural supports and resources
- Connecting individuals to FASD Networks, resources, and information
- Supporting the navigation of community resources and systems
- Informing and supporting the MNA citizenship process
- Offering cultural training to professionals who work with the Métis community
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
- MNA citizens and self-identified Métis people living in Alberta
- Must be diagnosed with or suspected of having FASD
