Darrell Cook Family Managed Supports Resource Centre Families and Staff Database

Inclusion Alberta and the Darrell Cook Family Managed Supports Resource Centre, have developed a new, innovative way of connecting families to potential staff.

The Darrell Cook Family Managed Supports Resource Centre (FMRC) is a collaborative effort between Family Voices Calgary, Inclusion Alberta and the Calgary Region Community Board for Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD).

The FMRC Connecting Families to Staff database is designed for families who have FMS funding for their adult family member with developmental disabilities and are seeking to hire staff to provide support in one or more of the following areas: In-Home and Out-of-Home Respite, Community Inclusion, Employment, Home Support, Supportive Roommate and Supported Independent Living. If you are the parent of a child with developmental disabilities (i.e., under the age of 18), please go to our Supportive Communities: Strengthening Families database for Connecting Families to Staff at http://supportivecommunities.inclusionalberta.org/.

If you are a potential support worker looking for an opportunity to make a positive difference in the life of an adult with a developmental disability, we would encourage you to register with the database.

To use this database you must first obtain a username and password. This is a very simple process and only requires you contact the Darrell Cook Family Managed Supports Resource Centre to gain access to the database. You cannot access the database without a username and password. You can click on the link below, email or call the Centre.

The FMRC Connecting Families to Staff database covers the following Calgary and area communities:

Calgary, Cochrane, Canmore, Banff, Airdrie, High River, Okotoks and surrounding rural areas

If you are a family member of an adult with a developmental disability and do not have a PDD agreement or are uncertain about what PDD offers, please contact Inclusion Alberta at T. 403-539-8192 or PDD (Calgary) directly at T. 403-297-5011 or
