Drumheller Settlement Services Serving:
- THE DRUMHELLER COMMUNITY
- ST.ANTHONY’S SCHOOL
- ST.LUKE’S OUTREACH CENTRE
Workshops, information and orientation sessions, and direct client service in either individual or group settings, will provide you and your family with support and assistance in settling in your new community. A wide variety of topics are covered, including housing, employment, education, health care, English classes, and housing. We encourage active participation in the community and facilitate the settlement process by bridging local services. We also help with application forms and documentations, and interpretations and translations.
SETTLEMENT WORKERS IN SCHOOLS
This program aims to provide a smooth transition for students as they enter into the Canadian school system, while empowering immigrant and refugee families to actively contribute and integrate into their child’s school community. In-school workers provide orientation, information, cultural interpretation, support and referrals, while acting as the liaison between families and educators.
Cultural Diversity Services offers workshops, resources and tools which enhance intercultural competency within CCIS and the communities of Calgary and Southern Alberta.
