“Community Links strengthens individuals, families, and communities of North Rocky View by providing them with and connecting them to services, supports, and resources.”
As of April 1, 2008, North Rocky View Community Resource Centre and Airdrie Family Services Society amalgamated to become Community Links. Support Services include, Counselling, Outreach, Community Development and Family Resources. Community Links serves and promotes the welfare of people in North Rocky View and ensures that all people have access to services, resources and opportunities they require to promote their well being.
I joined the Board of Community Links in 2012 to give back to the community.
In all areas of my career experience, I have developed a versatile, transferrable
professional skill set with carefully nurtured business values.
I want to support the work that is being done within Community Links for residents
of all ages, which is why I became a Board member in 2012. I bring an ability to
balance and understand the needs of staff, children and families with the realities of budgets and program expectations.
During my time as MLA for Airdrie, I came to rely on Community Links to assist me with dozens of vulnerable constituents. This is a great organization and I hope my background in law and politics can assist Community Links to continue their critical work in our community.
I returned to Community Links board to continue to give back to community. I have enjoyed the hard work and dedication shown by the staff and have seen the organization grow over the years as the needs of stakeholders have evolved. In good times and challenging times, organizations like Community Links are vital to ensure communities remain strong and vibrant.
