What We Do and Who We Help: 

• Mom was diagnosed with cancer.
• Dad was laid off.
• Aiden’s dad is addicted to fentanyl and lives in his van.
• Frederick’s mom tried to commit suicide.
• Alishia, physically and sexually abused, attends outreach school and lives on her own.
• Jillian is a single teen mom receiving parenting support and alternative education.

This question may best be asked, “Who do we NOT work with?” 

We pride ourselves on the inclusivity of our programs, and the diversity of the populations we serve.  

Kids Up Front collaborates directly with over 298 community social service agencies to provide FREE opportunities for recreation, participation in arts and cultural activities, sporting events, and educational experiences for the most vulnerable citizens of Calgary.  We serve children under 18 years of age and their families.  These children and families are from at-risk populations and often among the most marginalized and invisible in our city.   

Our families are dealing with poverty, financial stress, domestic violence and family breakdown, addictions, mental health issues, resettlement challenges, systemic discrimination, educational challenges, life-threatening illness, disabilities, and other complex social and personal situations.
