Our organization offers programs and services to the communities of Blackfalds, Clive, Joffre, Springbrook, the Summer Village of Gull Lake as well as a large portion of Red Deer and Lacombe County. The extensive geographic we serve (approximately 2,000 sq kms) requires staff and advocates to travel significant distances to deliver our services and engage in other activities on behalf of the unit (agency fairs, training etc). Population in this area is in excess of 40,000. In addition, using population data from a Red Deer County census, we provide services to approximately 33,000 customers, owners and employees of the businesses in the industrial areas within our service area. It is also estimated that over 75,000 motorists daily pass through our service area along the QE2 highway directly south of Red Deer – Gasoline Alley.
