Reducing Poverty

The Town of Stony Plain understands that poverty is complex, ambiguous, challenging, expensive, affects individuals and communities, means fewer choices, more stress, poorer health, children suffering and growing inequality. Poverty is a human rights issue.

Addressing the issue of poverty requires special considerations and community-wide solutions involving multiple community players and multiple levels of government. View more information on the Town of Stony Plain Poverty Reduction Strategy.

Supporting Wellness

Our vision is a vibrant community with a state of wellness for all.   We seek to help people understand, protect, sustain and flourish with their well-being.  Prevention and awareness are at the heart of what we do because we believe the best way to deal with a crisis is to address issues early.  We address wellness through training opportunities, communication, support services, means of safety,  and research.

Promoting Healthy Relationships

The Town of Stony Plain understands that family violence has negative social, financial and health impacts on those directly involved, as well as on their friends and family, colleagues, community and society at large. Through collaborations with community, we work preventively to shift perspectives, support those at risk and build the resilience and security of all our residents. 

Youth

The Centre continues to be an active presence in the community and grows to serve volunteering and community needs.
