LOCAL PEOPLE, LOCAL SUPPORT: PROMOTES LIFELONG SUCCESS
We’ll connect you to the help you need. Everyone we serve is different and everyone deserves the best service and support available in our region.
How does it work?
Our Resource Coordinator is your first point of contact for FASD Central. Our Coordinator acts as a centralized point where you can request service and supports. This single entry system provides coordinated access to a number of services within our collective of resource and service providers through one intake assessment process. Services are intended to be short term until long-term services are secure.
Our Corrections Coordinator is your point of contact for persons with FASD that are involved with the criminal justice system in our region. Our Coordinator will help you navigate through the system, connecting you with resources and services with a long-term view as you transition into the community. Aligned with the Resource Coordinator, this role provides coordinated access to our collective of resource and service providers. Services are intended to be short term until long-term services are secure.
FASD INFORMED LENS: FOCUSES A FASD INFORMED PRACTICE
Supporting persons with FASD as learners, neighbours, employees, volunteers, and friends in our communities begins with knowledge and understanding. Successful support involves “trying differently, not harder” and focusing on success, dignity, self-esteem, and creativity. Our coordinated and systems-wide approach to diagnostic, service and support connections allows us to provide ongoing consultation to supporting agencies and services in our region. This approach builds capacity and promotes our region to remain relevant and proficient to fully support persons with FASD. This is a win-win-win.
Who is eligible?
A FASD diagnosis allows us to provide a full suite of support for individuals; however you do not have to be diagnosed for us to help. Contact us and we will work with you on next steps to best support you.
