Meet our Regional Director Alaina Driedger!

Alaina took on the role of director after leading the steering committee that established Safe Families in Edmonton. While working as a speech assistant in northern Alberta Indigenous communities, she sensed God calling her to care for the vulnerable in her own city. Alaina has developed a heart for keeping families together through her experiences as a foster and adoptive parent. Alaina is passionate about supporting families in crisis before a breakdown occurs.

Alaina enjoys bike rides, tea lattes and spending time with her people. She and her husband Brenton have three sons.
