About FCSS

Stony Plain Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) is a partnership between the Town of Stony Plain, Parkland County and the Government of Alberta. The mandate of FCSS is to provide locally-driven, preventative, social initiatives to enhance the well-being of individuals, families and the community.

 Mission

Stony Plain FCSS supports families and individuals in all life stages through prevention-focused programs, to promote and maintain social wellness for a healthy community.

 Mandate

FCSS receives its mandate from the Provincial FCSS Act and Regulation, pursuant to that Act. At the local level, Council chooses whether to establish an FCSS program and enters into an agreement with the Province to jointly fund the program.

 Statement of Needs

Stony Plain FCSS strives to promote accessibility, senior's autonomy, engaged youth, supported families, and partnerships.

Strategic Goals

1.  Individuals and families are more resilient through preventive social service programming.

2.  Individuals, families and the community are aware of FCSS.

3.  The community and partners value FCSS.

Board of Directors

The Director of FCSS reports to a nine-member management board, which is directly accountable to Town Council. The board consists of one member of Council and eight members of the community-at-large, including representation from Parkland County. The community members are appointed by Council.

Terms are initially two years; however, board members can apply for two additional terms: two years and one year, respectively. The board hires the FCSS Director, while Council has ultimate authority over the program.
