ALIGN Association of Community Services is working for children and families in your community. We are a membership-based hub of over 120 child and family service agencies throughout Alberta. ALIGN member agencies employ 10,000 staff who deliver support services including early intervention, group care, foster and kinship care to 200,000 vulnerable children and families in Alberta each year. The Government of Alberta contracts with community agencies to deliver services for children and families in the communities they call home. Over 80% of these contracts are with ALIGN member agencies correspondingly ALIGN works collaboratively with and for our members on initiatives with and as stakeholders committed to improving the quality of life for Alberta’s most vulnerable citizens and the agencies that serve them.
