FCSS – Family and Community Support Services

FCSS Turner Valley Program Overview

Turner Valley Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) assists local non-profit organizations through funding and program support of the provincial Human Services Ministry. The partnership provides provincial funding that is matched with local tax dollars on an 80/20 share basis. The funding is then used to support and develop locally driven preventative social service initiatives. In Turner Valley, a Council-appointed board is responsible for reviewing applications and providing community input into social needs programming.

Turner Valley FCSS is supportive of community-based, locally driven initiatives which meet the vision and mandate of the program. FCSS philosophy is based on a belief that self-help contributes to a sense of integrity, self-worth and independence.

Programs are intended to help individuals adopt healthy lifestyles, thereby improving the quality of life of the community and building on the ability to prevent and deal with crisis situations should they arise.
