FCSS High River Community Supports and Services

The FCSS Resource Centre serves as a community hub for resources and support; FCSS is the starting point for accessing community supports and resources and staff are often the first point of contact for community members looking for information, assistance, or support. The Resource Centre staff serves as both a navigator and a connector of community support services and therefore staff are responsible for maintaining a strong working knowledge of the support services available and required for families, adults, and seniors.

2017 FCSS Community Grant Program

Through the funding provided by Province of Alberta, High River’s FCSS is able to provide funding to community organizations each year. The programs must meet FCSS mandate and eligibility guidelines set by the Province.

To be considered for funding programs must be social services that are preventative in nature to promote and enhance well-being among individuals, families and communities or programs that promote volunteerism. Programs can not duplicate other services, be primarily a recreational service, provide direct support to individuals or provide crisis or rehabilitative services.

Some programs that have received funding from High River FCSS include Big Brothers/Big Sisters; Foothills Regional Victim Services and Foothills Community Immigrant Services

Please review the 2017 instructions prior to completing the Family and Community Support Services Foothills Region 2017 Application Form.  Should you require assistance with outcomes, please refer to the FCSS Outcomes Measures Bank.  

Completed applications are due by November 30, 2016.  Applications may be emailed to skoot@highriver.ca, delivered in person to the FCSS Resource Centre (Unit 101, 303 – 9th Ave SW), or mailed to FCSS at 309B Macleod Tr. SW  High River. AB  T1V 1Z5
