contributions in the area of social services within the region.

about recognizing the important people dedicating work to the well-being of our
communities,” said Lisa Watson, acting County FCSS Director.

helping and they often choose these roles with the intention of giving behind
the scenes. The Passionate Heart Award is our way of saying thank you for all
of your valued work and care.”

their significant contributions,” said Angela Sutherland, City of Grande
Prairie Community Social Development Manager.
“The overarching goal of FCSS is to enhance the social
well-being of our communities and this is could not be achieved without the
dedication of our front-line workers.”
