Family and Community Support Services (FCSS)
The intention of the Town of Millet’s Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) Program is to deliver programs preventative in nature to promote and enhance the well-being among individuals, families and communities.
Please contact Lisa Schoening at 780-387-4554 for more information on any of the FCSS programs offered.
The main service we offer is a home maker service. The homemaker will do general household cleaning duties, which not only assists in preventing those in need from harming themselves, but also helps seniors maintain their independence in their own homes longer. Clients we serve are generally seniors, or those in need for a temporary period. (Example: someone returning from the hospital, or someone grieving with family to look after).
For information on the Homemaker program, please call Lisa Schoening at 780-387-4554.
The Town of Millet also uses its FCSS grant funds to provide Community Development programs, such as the Family Day Winter Festival. Staying active has many benefits - Need ideas on how to stay active? 101 active living ideas for older adults
Since our staffing is limited, to expand on our program, we also give grants to organizations which qualify for FCSS funding that we feel would be of benefit to our community. Grants that we have recently given out include: Millet School, Senior's Wellness Conference, Wetaskiwin & District Victim Services, Millet Little PIPS, Millet Seniors and many other community events.
Applications are placed in the order they are received, decisions on funding are made during out annual budget deliberations, held in March and April, please get your application in as early as possible!!!
