FCSS kicked off our first project for the Rural Mental Health grant!

Through a partnership with Heartland Youth Center , Big Brothers Big Sisters, Stettler Public Library and Wayne Paul, we have received funding to build six take one leave one libraries to place in Stettler, Botha, and Erskine. The Stettler Public Library will donate the “seed” books to stock the libraries. HYC, Big Brothers Big Sisters selected youth and mentors to work together to build and paint the libraries. Wayne Paul donated his time and expertise to assist youth and mentors in the building process.

We all enjoyed building these libraries together. It was great to see the smiling faces and sense of accomplishment after seeing our finished projects!

We are looking forward to launching these Rural Mental Health projects that will reconnect our community members and help raise mental health awareness.
