About our Network

A culture of collaboration. A vision of change.

The South Alberta FASD Network is a collective of agencies and individuals working together toward a common goal and a greater purpose: To strengthen the fabric of our community by reducing the incidence of FASD and improving the lives of individuals with FASD and their caregivers.

As we seek to increase regional capacity by enhancing and expanding FASD services in four key areas –awareness; prevention; assessment and diagnosis; and supports for individuals and caregivers – our work is cooperative, collaborative and community-based.

Our greatest inspiration is the promise of change. By providing a better quality of life for individuals with FASD and by changing how people understand and respond to FASD, we know we are changing lives and our community for the better.

Motivated by a deep desire to create positive change for individuals, families and our community, the South Alberta FASD Network tirelessly pursues our Vision and Mission.

Our Vision

To the community served by the South Alberta FASD Network, we deliver a comprehensive and coordinated regional response to FASD across the lifespan and a continuum of services respectful of individual, family, culture and community diversity.

Our Mission

The South Alberta FASD Network aims to increase regional capacity by enhancing existing FASD services and developing new services in four primary areas: awareness, prevention, assessment and diagnosis, and supports for individuals and caregivers. 

Our Service Area

Encompassing nearly 26,000 square kilometres in Alberta’s south-western corner, our Network’s catchment area extends from Crowsnest Pass on the west to Bow Island on the east, Vauxhall and Claresholm on the north to the U.S. Border on the south.

Our service area is home to more than 157,000 people. Nearly half live in Lethbridge; the rest are spread among more than 40 smaller towns and villages and their surrounding rural landscapes.

The region also includes two reserves which are the Blackfoot People of North Peigan (Piikani) and Blood (Kainai) Tribes. Their combined population exceeds 10,000.
