FCSSAA advocates on behalf of local communities and programs to the general public, municipal governments, regional service/government bodies, provincial agencies and authorities and national agencies and authorities.
The FCSSAA maintains a resource library, an online discussion area on its website and distributes information, job postings, as well as distributes information requests from FCSS programs to other FCSS programs and associate members in the province. FCSSAA also develops, acquires and shares tools, information and resources to all its members
FCSSAA provides orientation and education to its members (advisory boards, staff, council members) via conferences, training events, newsletters and information included in the Resource Bank. FCSSAA works with other provincial organizations to share information about local concerns or issues of FCSS programs such as emerging or increasing social issues, gaps in services and other identified areas of community need. The goal is to help identify areas in which we share common issues so we can provide an advanced level of training and expertise in communities to utilize best practices and innovative techniques to meet community challenges.
