Family Advocacy and Support Project

FASD MAPS is a partnership of four organizations that bring together a unique array of expertise in the area of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. At Hull Services, a family advocate works with children and youth, 8 to 15 who may be impacted by FASD.

The services provided include:

  • M – Mentoring: through in-home and group supports.
  • A – Advocacy: help build a support network for all family members.
  • P – Partnership: sharing of resources across Calgary and area.
  • S – Support: help stabilize families that are under stress and facing possible breakdown.

The goals of the partnership are:

  • To build on the strengths and abilities of individuals affected by FASD.
  • To increase individual, family and community awareness of the impact of FASD.
  • To increase recreational and social connections for young people affected by FASD.
  • To develop and promote family strategies and support for managing FASD.

In addition to Hull Services, FASD MAPS partners with:

  • Renfrew Education Services works with children, newborn to 10 years who may be affected by FASD.
  • McMan Youth, Family and Community Services works with youth and young adults, ages 15-21 who may be affected by FASD.
