Arguably, governments have a mandate to keep our most vulnerable citizens safe, including young children. Recently, the Province of Alberta and the City of Lethbridge initiated significant realignments of their prevention and early intervention services for families.
The speaker will explore these changes from the perspective of an agency that provides preventive services on behalf of governments. The goal is to continue a wholesome and productive discussion about how we protect children in our community.
Speaker: Peter Imhof
Peter Imhof came to Lethbridge in 2001 from Germany. After almost 10 years in technical research and development, he joined Family Centre of Lethbridge in 2012 where he became the executive director in 2014.
Through Family Centre, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, Peter, his staff and volunteers help grow the resilience of the children, youth and families in our community.
Moderator: Bev Muendel-Atherstone
