While Moonlight Madness will take over the town on Friday, Nov. 25, Stettler FCSS has decided to host an open house to let people in the community know about some of the services they provide to help and support people as they navigate through difficult situations in life.

“The open house is simply a way for the community to access us,” said Patrick Callin, outreach community worker and facilitator. “So many people are unaware of what it is that Stettler FCSS does, so we are opening our doors on Friday evening to let them know who are we.”

Callin said that people can get information about the various programs they run and if individuals are eligible for funds.

“Opening our doors to the community will allow them to come in and see who we are without having a specific need,” Callin added. “We have created a cozy and warm environment that will give the public a warm place to stay a while longer, engage with is and ultimately make them feel welcome and safe.”

All of the FCSS staff will be present to help assit them with any queries they might have.

“We will also be serving hot beverages, such as coffee and tea, besides hotdogs, cookies and donuts,” Callin said.
