ALIGN Association of Community Services is a membership association of agencies providing services to children and families in Alberta. ALIGN (formerly Alberta Association for Services to Children and Families AASCF) formed in 1967 as a network of agencies with common interests.
We have represented child welfare and family service providers in Alberta for over 40 years. During that time we championed the development of standards dedicated to residential and community childcare services, influenced social policy and legislation and advocated on behalf of service providers.
Currently ALIGN has several Regional Chapters throughout Alberta and are in the process of creating additional chapters to meet the changing needs of our members. The governing Board of Directors is made up of representatives from Regional Chapters, Aboriginal Community and Strategic Initiatives.
I saw news clip on this - they call it Ghosting. Many businesses struggling with no shows for interviews -people working a few days and not showing up again - was concerns its becoming normal &acceptable. Anyone else dealing with this? Suggestions on how best to address this? twitter.com/WestHendayYeg/…
It’s unacceptable. What people don’t often know is you will be working 30-80 hours a month for free. The amount of time spent setting up interviews only to have no one show or training ppl only to have them quit 2 weeks in. Paper work, appeals, lack of funding, it’s all very hard— Leah McRorie (@WestHendayYeg) February 7, 2019
