City releases 2014 Annual Community Social Report

September 18, 2015/ For Immediate Release

AIRDRIE, ALBERTA – The City of Airdrie has released its 2014 Annual Community Social Report, and invites residents to view the report online to understand the difference the city and the province are marking in their community.

The report is broken out into two parts. First, it includes information about the Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) Program and how it meets the social well-being of the community and individuals by measuring their outcomes through survey scores. Second, it speaks about the Community Development partnership programs and events that help develop strong neighbourhoods through community facilitation and the Community Investment Funds.

“The report demonstrates the positive changes that the City has on the daily lives of individuals, families through FCSS and Community Development. Our role is to enhance the quality of life for the citizens of Airdrie,” says Cathy O'Donoghue, Social Planning Coordinator.

Highlights of this report include the success stories from some of the 13,324 parents, children, youth and seniors who participated in preventive social programs. As well, the number of volunteers who participated in the planning of the 2014 Alberta Summer Games, who were integral part of the social and community fabric of our community.
