Did you know?

Beginning in 1988, Bruderheim was the first municipality in Lamont County to enter into partnership to provide Family and Community Support Services programming. FCSS has been adding flavour to life in Bruderheim for more than twenty years by providing a variety of activities and programs for residents.

Why are FCSS programs considered 'preventative'?

The goal of FCSS programming is to develop a sense of integrity, self-worth, and independence among individual members of the community and within the Town as a whole. The intention is that this will help to prevent a number of common personal and societal problems. FCSS programs focus on:

  • Encouraging the adoption of healthy lifestyles,
  • Strengthening and stabilizing family and community life,
  • Improving people's ability to identify and act on their own needs,
  • Helping to avoid family or community social breakdown, and
  • Encouraging cooperation and coordination among community groups and service agencies.
