Family Wellness Worker

Our Family Wellness worker is available to help support parents and caregivers of children with special needs who may need assistance throughout a diagnostic period, during transitions from one stage of their child's development to another, or for general family supports. The Family Wellness Worker will provide assistance through:

  • direct support during family visits and program follow-ups
  • assisting families in assessing service needs and linking them to appropriate community resources
  • advocacy supports for families that may have concerns surrounding their child's program, development, transitions, or with other service providers
  • partnering with other community organizations or agencies to provide educational workshops, information sessions, and a variety of children's playgroups
  • exploration of new program options so that all needs may be met in our community

Family Room and Toy Lending Library

Toy Lending Library Update Please click on link for details.

The Family Room & Toy Lending Library were developed for the use of our Community. All families who use the center are welcome to use the Family Room for meetings, networking, or simply relaxing while waiting for program to end each day.

All toys have been chosen for their educational development value. The Toy Lending Library, through generous donations from FCSS and our community, has been developed to support our belief of learning through play. The Toy lending Library is available to all residents of the city and county of Wetaskiwin.

Large varieties of resources are available and may be loaned out to our families for a period of three weeks. Please speak with the Family Wellness Worker about borrowing toys or booking the Family Room for meetings.
