Since 1995 Encompass Support Services Society has been providing excellent services to the Langley communities. In 2011, Aldergrove Neighbourhood Services Society and Family and Youth Services Society took part in a merger process that lead to one larger agency under the umbrella of Encompass Support Services Society. We currently hold a three year accreditation through CARF Canada. CARF accreditation signals our commitment to continually improve services, encourage feedback and serve the community. All of our programs are grassroots and community based with the goal to provide the community with accessible support services and socially positive activities that link and engage participants in their community. Activities and supports are designed to build new skills, foster healthy productive lifestyles and improve access to services within our community. All agency services are low barrier and all inclusive and are free to participants. Specific programs have been adjusted to accommodate community need and are focused on enhancing access for all participants.
Encompass Support Services Society programs are well subscribed and supported throughout the community. In 2012 we provided services to over 3500 individuals through our agency. With an annual operational budget of just over 1.9 million dollars, we would not be able to deliver our programs effectively without partnerships with other community organizations and groups. Through our community partnerships we are able to maximize many of our resources to deliver effective and timely programming. Partners include local service providers, schools, government, the faith community, the local library and others. We are able to be responsive and accommodate community need as we have multiple funding partners and outreach services that can be delivered in multiple locations. To sustain and enhance the excellent services we provide, we are always working in partnerships and searching for opportunities to enhance and sustain the programs we successfully deliver. Encompass Support Services Society enjoys an excellent reputation for delivering programs throughout the Langley communities.
