The Full Story
Vermilion Brighter Beginnings was established in 1997, spearheaded by a group of forward thinking individuals representing Education, Health and the Department of Children's Services. The concept was developed in response to a need for children and families in our community, who facing challenges, needed an agency to turn to for supports and programming. Over the course of several years this program changed and evolved into an agency, serving all children and families in the communities of Vermilion, Clandonald, Dewberry, Kitscoty, Blackfoot, Islay, Paradise Valley and Marwayne. 10 - 12 staff are employed yearly including a Certificated Teacher. We promote inclusiveness, teamwork between families and staff, as well as building the community's capacity to support the needs of young families with children.
