Love is Growing!

Hey Red Deer! Here is something positive to focus on in the midst of our current situation with self isolating. Let’s see if we can get this started. Cut, color or print a heart and place it in one or multiple windows in your home. Then let’s encourage everyone to get outside for a healthy walk and look for the hearts in windows. We, of course, are not encouraging you to do this in groups or close to others. Just go for a family walk and try to find as many hearts as you can. Share this post with your neighbors, school contacts, anyone that can get it going!!! Let’s do this Red Deer! Let’s show our love for our community and stay connected in a different way!

NOTE: Right click on the heart and click "Copy Image" and paste it into a Word document for printing.

To educate and excite our community on building blocks that all children and youth need in order to thrive, which includes the 40 Developmental Assets and healthy lifestyles.

Our Vision:

To focus on the development of healthy children and youth by increasing protective factors and reducing risk factors.

Essentially, we aim to teach adults and kids that becoming aware of the 40 Developmental Assets, and then making efforts to grow them in ourselves and others will lead to healthy people living healthy lives within healthy communities.
