Encompass society marks milestone

It is the 20th anniversary of Encompass Support Services Society which has served Langley and Aldergrove

It is the 20th anniversary of Encompass Support Services Society – a non-profit community based organization which has served Langley for over 20 years.

Encompass President Sherry Baker and Executive Director Lynne Topham recall that it started as a dream between two smaller Langley  organizations which led to a conversation, which let to a partnership, and ultimately resulted in the creation of a new entity – Encompass Support Services Society.

Family and Youth Services Society (FAYSS) and Aldergrove Neighbourhood Services Society (ANSS) both operated as individual organizations until 2011 when they decided to join forces and work together under one umbrella.

Both agencies had several similarities – both were created the same year (1995), both were community-based, responsive and preventative in nature, but most importantly, both agencies firmly believed that together they could accomplish so much more in terms of addressing community need.

This significant milestone is a tribute to the growth and accomplishments achieved over two decades.
