Athabasca & Area

Supporting, Healthy, Active, Resilient, Early Development – S.H.A.R.E.D

Who we are:

S.H.A.R.E.D Athabasca Coalition stands for Supporting Healthy Active Resilient Early Development. We are located in Athabasca County.

Our Mission: Through proficient community development practices, we strive to strengthen working relationships between families and agencies within the surrounding communities in order to enhance early childhood development resources.

Our Goal: Increase awareness of available programs, services and supports in our community and to coordinate with service providers to share information. Build and strengthen relationships with surrounding playgroups and develop a strong cohesive coalition.

Where we’ve been:

Every year we work to put on two events in the communities, last year in the fall for National Child Day we collaborated with Whispering Hills Day Care Society and hosted a Free Family Dinner with entertainment and activities for the children in Athabasca. The second event SHARED hosted a Free Family Dance, with snacks, activities and information tables in Boyle. Both of our events are very well attended.

Where we’re going:

We have a wonderful committee with representatives from different agencies in our community.

We are looking to have more information tables at events to bring awareness to the importance of early childhood development and to increase awareness of programs, supports and services we have available in our community.
