Tuning into a Compassionate Community is a project that will engage with diverse community groups and individuals living and/or working in Maple Ridge in order to foster a common understanding of compassion in a civil society that speaks to diverse interests. This project will be administered and supervised by the FASD Society for BC, and will receive advisement by the Maple Ridge Substance Misuse Prevention Committee (SMPC). Funding for this project is provided by the District of Maple Ridge via a Community Grant.A consultant will be contracted to facilitate dialogues and collect/analyze “stories of compassion” to distill actionable behaviours that can be creatively promoted throughout Maple Ridge using established social media mechanisms. This engagement will also lead to identifying local “champions” for future district compassion charter work.

Goal #3: to identify at least 10 local “champions” to facilitate future District Compassion Charter work as guided by the Social Planning Advisory Committee.
