FCSS with COE logo

Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) is a joint municipal/provincial partnership that funds preventive social service programs.

The overarching priority for Edmonton FCSS is to increase social inclusion and equity by funding preventive programs and services, community development initiatives, and social infrastructure.

Prevention is a proactive process that strengthens the protective factors of individuals, families, and communities to promote well-being, reduce vulnerabilities, enhance the quality of life, and empower them to meet the challenges of life.

The combined efforts of funded programs and City activities are working toward achieving Council's strategic plan, priorities and goals, with focused efforts on social inclusion.
