Year 10 of FASD Strategic Plan
PCAP celebrates 10 years of being Alberta’s selected program for targeted and indicated FASD.
PCAP Women’s Quilt
The PCAP Women’s Quilt was made by the PCAP participants, showcasing their experience with the support programs and what PCAP means to them. The expressive quilt showed that the PCAP participants found hope and understanding in the program.
PCAP Mentors Quilt
The PCAP Mentors Quilt was created as part of a research project with Dr. Jacquie Pei and the University of Alberta. The quilt showcased that the funders, researchers, and evaluators understood the process of relationship-based work in PCAP.
In 2012, the Council selected the Penelope Case Management System from Athena Software as the database for the province. The Council was able to provide training and encouragement to programs to integrate the tools into their regular work.
10 Year FASD Strategic Plan
The 10 Year FASD Strategic Plan was developed. As part of the initiative, several strategies, goals and their expected outcomes were defined. In 2007, the Government of Alberta chose PCAP as the program of choice to address targeted and indicated prevention of FASD.
First Nations PCAP
7 Federally funded First Nations PCAP Model Programs started. The programs were implemented with the support of Dr. Grant, who had experience with PCAP programs on First Nation reserves. These communities integrated PCAP as an embedded stream of services to which individuals could be recommended if they met all the intake requirements.
PCAP programs began in Alberta
Three PCAP programs began in Alberta: Edmonton Bissell Centre, Edmonton Catholic Social Services, and Lethbridge Alberta Health Services, and expanded soon after to Calgary and Cold Lake in 2000 and 2001, respectively.
