Celebrating Fathers’ on the road to recovery 

Dear Friend, 

Father’s Day is just two days away and we are getting ready to honour and celebrate our residents who are fathers. We serve over 250 men at one time at the Calgary Dream Centre(CDC), and many of those individuals are fathers. 

The road to recovery is not an easy one, and we want to take a moment to honour the fathers in recovery who continue to look ahead. 

Through our years here at the Calgary Dream Centre, we have witnessed many roads to recovery. We have seen fathers regain custody of their children and broken relationships restored. We have witnessed many fathers overcome the cycle of addiction and step into walking out lives filled with freedom, joy, and purpose. 

These father’s are entering into a lifestyle of recovery not just for their own sake, but so they can become the best dad they can be for their children and for that we honour you this Father’s Day. 

I invite you to pray for and encourage our Dream Centre fathers, as they step into a new season of living out fatherhood in recovery.

Please continue to read to hear more exciting updates that are taking place at the Calgary Dream Centre!
