Big Brothers Big Sisters of Red Deer is excited to announce that the agency received $1,000,000 through the Community Facility Enhancement Program in support of facility enhancements and upgrades to the recently acquired Centre for Social Impact building.

“We are grateful for the support from CFEP, which enables us to address facility enhancements and upgrades in support of the charities and non-profits that share this place where community connects.” States Rob Lewis, Executive Director, YouthHQ.

“Investments into non-profits in our communities, like Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Red Deer not only support new activities and programming but uplift youth and help build stronger communities. Alberta’s government is proud to provide this million dollar grant to Red Deer Big Brothers and Big Sisters, as they provide essential supports and services for the youth of Red Deer and surrounding area.”
