It's our goal to make this the best party yet!
Registration opens today, October 1st.

This is another one of our respite events - so parents can get a much deserved break! Take it! Act fast! Space is limited.

Do you want to be on the wait list to buy tickets?
100% of ticket proceeds will go to CP Kids and Families.

How can you give back to CP Kids and Families?

We are so proud of the programs, services and resources that we can provide to our members. As many of you know, we carry out these programs with a very small staff and an amazing Board of Directors, who give their all (and then some more).

We love doing it - but we could always use more help to make our programs and events even better!

Can you help with any of the following?

  • Silent auction items for Christmas Party
  • Seeking Corporate Sponsors (we have everything prepared and ready to send to potential sponsors)
  • Providing items for our Christmas Adopt-A-Family initiative
  • Finding a business, sports team, or individual to Adopt a Family this Christmas (approx $600)
  • Kids Helping Kids
  • 100 Women Who Care
  • 100 Kids Who Care
  • 100 Men Who Give A Damn
Ugh. Winter came upon us too quickly this past weekend. If you have an adapted bike through our CP Kids and Families Adapted Bike Program, PLEASE don't leave it outside all winter. Put it in your garage. If you can't do that, please call us to arrange for indoor storage.

Thank you.

Call 403-205-4935 and ask for Carol.

New Group!

Sib Connect

It can be tough to be a sibling of a child with special needs.

There is a new support group called SibConnect.

First meeting is in October. There is a Facebook group and Instagram page with more information.
This support group will meet once a month from October until the spring, and each meeting will focus on a different topic (like guilt, or navigating relationships, or moving out, etc) while doing fun and creative activities (like painting, making gingerbread houses, sculpting, etc) while talking freely and openly. It’s always easier and much less awkward to talk freely while you’re doing something with your hands.

If you are a young adult sibling of a person with a disability (be it autism, or cerebral palsy, or anything else) who would be interested in joining, or if you are a parent of someone who would be interested in joining, please connect on facebook or insta - or e-mail shetin.adams@gmail.com 😊
