Jessica is the reason we do what we do. Our doors opened 25 years ago today, and it’s stories like Jessica’s that perfectly exemplify the heart and the purpose behind Kids Kottage - keeping children safe. We want to take some time to celebrate 25 years of stories like Jessica’s. 25 years of keeping children safe and families strong. 25 years of serving Edmonton’s most vulnerable; the children.
Update Regarding COVID-19
Kids Kottage is an essential service for Edmonton's most vulnerable infants, children, and their caregivers. We have been closely following the advice of Alberta Health Services and Dr. Deena Henshaw and taking necessary actions to obtain our utmost priority of the well-being of our infants, children, caregivers, and staff ensuring their health and safety.
Our crisis line remains open to all in need along with our follow up programs. We are here to serve infants, children, and their caregivers, and we will continue to do so in a safe and trusted way.
If you or someone you know is in need, please do not hesitate to reach out to our crisis line at
We are here to help and to serve Alberta’s most vulnerable populations.
Kids Kottage Foundation is grateful for the continued support from our community, funders, and donors.
Together, we can get through this. Through compassion, empathy, and community spirit.
Who are we?
We all need help from time to time
To stop the threat of abuse and to minimize the stress these parents are facing, we offer to take the children for up to 72 hours. The children are kept safe at the Kottage while their parents, relieved of parenting responsibilities for a short time, identify and implement plans to solve or mitigate the issue of the crisis. Parents in crisis who bring their children to the Kottage are met with support and encouragement.
We help parents develop a plan to cope with their current crisis. Less than 3% of parents and children who participate in the Kids Kottage program need government child protection intervention.
Every child deserves to be safe.Donate
Throughout December we will be hosting our annual Radiothon Fundraiser. Without the support of our generous community, Kids Kottage would not exist, and we are never more aware of that than during the Christmas season.
On June 5th, we are once again honoured to be the charity-of-choice for TSN1260's Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament that took place at the Ranch Golf & Country Club.
November is an important month at Kids Kottage, both because it’s Family Violence Prevention Month, and because of November 20th – National Child Day. Both causes are so important to our hearts and at the core of everything we do here at the Kottage.
