About FCSS

FCSS is funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services and Yellowhead County. The FCSS mandate is to provide preventive services that enhance the social wellbeing of individuals, families and community. 
Our funding prohibits us from using money to directly support individuals, provide services that are the responsibility of other ministries, or that are rehabilitative in nature.  Funding cannot be used for crisis situations either. 
FCSS has 5 strategic directions under which our programming must follow.  Please give us your thoughts about programming that you would like, related to these strategic directions.
