COVID-19 Community Response Programs

Thanks to a Social Services Support for COVID-19 emergency grant from the Province of Alberta, we are happy to announce assistance for individuals towards a number of programs available in the community. If you are isolated at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic or are experiencing food insecurity and need help with meals, transportation to medical appointments or in-home support services such as light housekeeping and/or yard work, please answer the following questions to determine your eligibility for this subsidized program. All information is kept confidential. Funding is limited and the Program will operate as part of our COVID-19 response until funds are fully expended.
