ALBERTA FASD SERVICE NETWORKS: AN ALBERTA FASD CROSS-MINISTRY INITIATVE
Alberta FASD-Cross Ministry Committee and Alberta’s 12 regional FASD Service Networks have successfully developed and implemented a FASD prevention and service delivery model that is client-focused and results-oriented. FASD-informed supports and services are now accessible to Albertans in every corner of the province. Networks have evolved into well-managed organizations with deep roots in their communities (Government of Alberta, 2014).
The FASD Service Network Program is as a leading practice model for service delivery, supporting community-based partnerships of agencies and organizations working together to build capacity for FASD prevention, assessment and diagnosis, and the provision of supports and services for individuals with FASD, their families and caregivers.
Respect for cultural diversity, and the development of culturally-informed services in collaboration with Indigenous and immigrant families and communities are key drivers of FASD Service Network Program design.
