Fassy will be having a “FASD informed support” evening program running on October 24th, 25th and 26th from 6 – 9 pm. Please call NISJ at Yukon College to apply. You can call 867.456.8589 or email email@example.com for more information.
The first part of the research project collaboration with the University of Alaska, Anchorage has come to an end. We thank all who participated by taking the online survey. We look forward to the results of the research in early 2017.
We give a special thank you to the Jarvis Street Saloon, Grateful Spud, The Dirty Northern Public house and Yukon College for their participation in the research project. Without these community partners
we would have been unable to provide the dispensers or do the research without you! We also thank Yukon Brewing for their sponsorship.
We look forward to the ongoing partnership with Yukon College and the Dirty Northern Public House who are continuing to have pregnancy test dispensers in their facilities. The CPNP of Dawson City has a dispenser in the lobby washroom of the Downtown Hotel. They have sold 100 tests from this one site!!
We are looking forward to expanding this program – so if interested – please call!!
Fassy would like to announce that we are holding a raffle fundraiser for our socially inclusive lunch program! If you would like to buy tickets, please come on down to our office or call 393-4948 for more information.
The raffle draw is being held on September 9th at our FASD International Day celebration at Shipyards Park.
Support Fassy by coming down to our office and buying your tickets now!
Fassy would like to send a big thank you to United Way for their generous donation to our Lunch Program! Thank you for helping us keep such a valuable program up and running. It is greatly appreciated!
Our pregnancy test dispensers are a success! 133 pregnancy tests sold in ten months – that’s 13 a month!
Yukon college has created a gender neutral washroom on the main floor and a pregnancy test dispenser is now available at this location. A second dispenser will be installed in a second floor women’s washroom soon.
Take the survey! Use the QRS code on the pregnancy test dispensers located at Yukon College or the Dirty Northern Public House to take a short survey and receive a $25.00 iTunes card. You can also find this code on the posters located in the women’s washrooms at the Jarvis Street Saloon or the Grateful Spud.
There is still time! The research collaboration from the University of Alaska, Anchorage, continues and has been extended to June of 2016.
Thanks for protecting the next generation!
