Our goal is to provide community support to parents affected by perinatal stroke by providing them with access to social support, educational information, and community resources. We serve families in Calgary and Southern Alberta. The feedback we have received from the parent support group has been overwhelmingly positive. The parents report a reduced sense of isolation, increased confidence in their parenting abilities, and a greater understanding of their child's condition and community resources. The is an open-ended support group that is held once a month for 1.5 hours in the community.
 
We are affiliated with the Calgary Pediatric Stroke Program (Alberta Children's Hospital), Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta, Nunavut and the Northwest Territories, and the Stroke Recovery Association of Alberta.
