Cochrane and Area Interagency
The Cochrane and Area Interagency’s mandate is to encourage organizational collaboration and address community needs. Membership provides non-profit social service organizations with:
- regular newsletters sharing what’s happening in the community
- networking and relationship building opportunities
- opportunities for the creation of collaborative community responses to social issues
- promotion of services, programs and events
Interagency meetings take place monthly and alternate between Information Sharing and Hot Topic sessions. There are no meetings during July, August, and December.
Local reports and needs assessments
Cochrane Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) provides reports and needs assessments to help non-profits plan and deliver their programs.
FCSS meeting rooms (Stable and Back 40) are available to non-profit organizations and community groups.
Priority for the use of the meeting rooms is given to FCSS and FCSS-partnered meetings, programs, or events. FCSS may pre-empt organizations and groups, but will provide advanced notice (two days when possible) if it needs emergency use of the meeting rooms.
All organizations using FCSS meeting rooms must sign a contract annually with FCSS and receive an orientation before use. Contact FCSS for more details.
Grants are available to help support non-profits in providing services and programs to the community.
