Family Resource Network

The City of Wetaskiwin FCSS works in partnership with many community organizations to ensure the programs needed most, happen. 

Recently there was a closure of two important programs in the Wetaskiwin area, The Parentlink Centre and the Wetaskiwin Early Years Coalition. With the loss of those programs came a new opportunity called the Family Resource Network.

The Boys and Girls Club of Wetaskiwin will now provide services under the Family Resource Network to families and youth in the 0-18 age range. You can check out a full list of programming here.

As a partner of the Boys and Girls Club, FCSS will be there to ensure minimal gaps in service delivery. We look forward to working with you and your families through this new and exciting program opportunity.

The Family Resource Network, funded through the Children Service’s Ministry – Family and Community Resiliency Division, provides consistent, responsive, flexible, and evidence-based or evidence-informed programs and services that are accessible and delivered to children and youth 0-18, and their families. Programs and services will include a continuum of universal, targeted, and intensive service delivery and align with three core service delivery domains: 

• Child development and well-being supports
• Caregiver capacity-building support
• Social connections and supports 

Along with our community partners, the Boys and Girls Club of Wetaskiwin is pleased to support Network Area 6 including the City of Wetaskiwin, County of Wetaskiwin, Town of Ponoka, County of Ponoka, and Rimbey.
