Viking/Beaver FCSS services residents living in the Town of Viking, Village of Holden, and east half of Beaver County, including the hamlets of Bruce and Kinsella. These municipalities partner with the Province of Alberta to deliver locally driven preventive social initiatives that enhance the well-being of individuals, families and communities. Municipalities, through board members appointed on their behalf, determine where the need for programming and services lies. Programs and services can be targeted to individuals of any age, to families, or to entire communities. We also provide information and referral services and support to volunteer work in the community. Please contact us!
Effective April 21, 2020, the Government of Alberta will be temporarily suspending applications for the $30 million in emergency social services funding to charities, not-for-profits and civil society organizations to support their COVID-19 response. Government has received over 600 applications. Current applications are being reviewed, and approvals for urgent requests will occur before reopening intake of applications.
Updates will be made as they occur. Please check back to this page for the most accurate information. Viking/Beaver FCSS Update
