Empowering caregivers with knowledge, tools and resources to build trust and create a sense of safety in the youth they care for. 

If you're caring for a young person affected by the stress and stigma of a parent's substance use, thanks for being here.  Our resources aim to empower you with knowledge through peer-developed and recommended support and caregiver connect sessions.

...I attended your caregiver session through Alberta Health Services and learned so much about how I can support my niece, but also felt so validated in my own childhood experiences. Thank you...

Ways we connect with caregivers:

Join one of our free monthly virtual informations sessions

Our caregiver sessions are aimed at supporting caregivers in building a trusting, destigmatizing relationship with impacted youth by providing you with information and resources that helps you understand their experiences, connect in meaningful ways, and build a positive sense of self and identity for youth.

Free Hope Kits


Each year, we proudly distribute 50 complimentary Hope Kits to caregivers in Alberta. These kits, valued at over $100, are meticulously crafted to offer peer-developed healing resources, healing books, and practical tools. They empower caregivers to forge deeper connections with the youth they support, fostering meaningful engagement and lasting impact.

Our Resources

Our first-of-its-kind resources are used around the world, and are  based on the lived experience of youth who have grown up with the stress and stigma of a parent's substance use. View/ Purchase below.
