Community Partnerships

Enhancing Your Community

Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) enhances your community by building partnerships and relationships to better our residents’ quality of life. Our partnerships are flexible and ever-changing to meet the needs of our community.

Inter-Agency Meetings

  • Informal, open meetings with representatives from agencies, organizations, non-profits, and all others interested. Members meet to share information about services and social programs in the City of Wetaskiwin. Everyone is welcome to attend!
  • Meetings provide an opportunity for service providers to network and discuss social issues that are important to people in our community.
  • Inter-agency provides the opportunity to develop partnerships and avoid duplication of services.
  • Meetings are from 9:00 am to 11:00 am on the third Wednesday of every second month, January, March, May, September, and November (no meetings in the summer months). Meeting locations and host agencies are determined at each previous meeting.
