Starland, villages partner to deliver FCSS programs

Starland County, in conjunction with the villages of Morrin, Munson and Delia are looking at a new way to deliver Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) programs. The county receives provincial funding to deliver programming, and in previous years they have used it to fund programs through the Prairie Land Regional School Division. “Ever since we got into FCSS, we have given all of our funding allocation to Prairie Land for operating the community resource worker program,” said Starland CAO Ross Rawlusyk. “They run a fairly large regional program with resource workers in Hanna and Consort for example, and there is no consistency on who pays in to it.”
