Red Deer & District Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) released its 2015 Annual Report, entitled “Stone Soup – A Recipe for Community.”

The theme of the report “Stone Soup” is based on a folk story with the moral of by working together, with everyone contributing what they can, a greater good is achieved. The publication focuses on this concept by highlighting programming which provides nourishing ingredients to create the foundation of a caring community.

The report includes information about the many projects, programs and events that happened in 2015 including:

Success stories from some of the over 15,000 residents served by FCSS programs funded by the six partner municipalities.

How the $2.9 million of funding was invested to support preventative social programming within local non-profit societies, school boards and municipalities

“The Annual Report demonstrates the positive changes that FCSS has on the daily lives of individuals, families and communities in our region,” said Kathy Sitter, Red Deer and District FCSS Board Chair. “The Board is proud to share the stories of the participants and their families that attended projects that range from local playschools, Boys and Girls Clubs, walk-in counseling and seniors outreach services in 2015.”

Red Deer and District FCSS partner municipalities include the Town of Bowden, Village of Delburne, Village of Elnora, Town of Penhold, Red Deer County and The City of Red Deer. Red Deer & District FCSS is part of a larger provincial program that collectively helps to ensure Albertans have access to a strong network of prevention supports.
