Foothills SNAPS provides a variety of supports to individuals and families across age groups and pan-disability. They created the “Foothills First – Catch the Rural Wave” initiative through the Alberta Employment First Innovation Fund by Alberta Community and Social Services.
While Foothills SNAPS provides a variety of supports, Foothills First was specifically designed to welcome more individuals with disabilities into the workforce. The three components of this initiative are: to assist individuals with any type of disability to build pre-employment skills and find work, to provide businesses with the awareness and knowledge they require to hire inclusively, and to strengthen community commitment to inclusion.
