Grants to Alberta, Canada non-profit organizations addressing significant priority social issues in Strathcona County that are not provided by any other community organizations. Services should demonstrate at least one of the following principles: social inclusions, social responsibility, community connectedness, and health and well-being.
1) Social inclusion is the process by which efforts are made to ensure that everyone, regardless of their experiences and circumstances, can achieve their potential in life. A socially inclusive society is one where citizens have a sense of belonging to their communities and have the opportunity to access services, learning, employment, recreational and cultural activities. It is fostered when all individuals and families benefit equitably from the distribution of resources and availability of opportunities to participate in all aspects of community life.
2) Community connectedness refers to the sense of belonging to a community that occurs through the formal and informal networks developed when people come together for social, educational, recreational, spiritual, cultural and/or work-related purposes.
3) Social responsibility includes acceptance of consequences of one’s own actions, a caring attitude towards others, acceptance of individual and cultural diversity and recognition of human rights. It occurs when citizens value the worth that the community derives from members expressing a sense of responsibility to each other through voluntary engagement and collective decision making.
4) Health and well-being is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social wellness. For individuals it includes the capacity of people to adapt to, respond to, or control life’s challenges and changes. A healthy community is one that is continually creating and improving physical and social environments and expanding resources which enable people to mutually support each other in performing the functions of life and in developing to their maximum potential. It is promoted when residents feel comfortable with the safety and cleanliness of their environment and have timely, equitable access to key services such as health, education, transportation and housing.
5) Basic needs include sufficient income for the support of individuals and their families, appropriate and affordable housing, health care, nutritious food, jobs that utilize people’s skills and abilities and safe communities and workplaces.
