Drayton Valley & District Family and Community Support Services (FCSS)

Drayton Valley and District Family and Community Support Services endeavors to enhance the well-being and resiliency of the community of Drayton Valley & District by providing information, education and funding for organizations who provide preventative services. By coordinating, networking and partnering with local service agencies, Drayton Valley and District FCSS helps people to develop independence and resistance to crisis while creating an awareness of social needs and providing tools and resources to build a strong community.

In order to meet the needs of our community, Drayton Valley and District FCSS focuses on three main areas for program delivery:

  1. Preventative social programs, where people gain new skills and knowledge that will create a community that is resilient to crisis. Drayton Valley and District FCSS  offers forty one in house programs and services and have provided funding for twenty programs offered by ten different agencies so far this year.
  2. Resilient Communities work together to prevent social problems and provide opportunities for children, youth, families, adults and seniors to fully participate in the community. Drayton Valley and District FCSS has initiated seven inter agency groups who are working in collaboration with one another.  FCSS has partnered with eleven additional community initiatives.
  3. Volunteers make social programs and resilient communities possible by giving their time and expertise to others. Volunteers benefit from FCSS programs by learning new skills to make their job as a board member easier and enjoy the recognition they get when they attend the annual FCSS Volunteer Appreciation banquet.
