Funding and Support for Regina’s Most Vulnerable


Family Service Regina is working hard to support the community through adversity. We are determined to fulfill our mission and strengthen individuals, families and our community through responsive leadership and innovative programs.

Though we have found new ways to support the people we serve while remaining socially distant, the COVID-19 is already having an effect on our ability to raise funds. Family Service Regina has lost the opportunity to raise both awareness and money for our programs and services through an exciting, new summer event that has been canceled.

We rely heavily on corporate donations or third-party fundraisers, and with many companies facing their own financial constraints, they are bracing for a trickle-down effect, but remain hopeful to see a few corporate and individuals come through.

If you or your business is able to help us, help our community please use the contact information below.

A Message from CEO, Shellie Pociuk

A Message from Shellie Pociuk, CEO

During these challenging and unprecedented times, I want to let you know that you
are all on our minds!

I know that you have received many messages over the last weeks regarding
COVID-19, and you are concerned about its impact on yourself, your families and
workplaces and vulnerable families in our community. I want to assure you that the
wellbeing of our employees, our volunteers, our clients and their families, and the
community remain our top priorities.

Office Closure

As a result of the current situation, we have made the difficult decision to close our
main office temporarily to the public and in person services, effective March 25,
2020. I can assure you we stayed open for in-person service as long we possibly
could, but now believe closing to be in the best interests of our staff, clients,
partners and volunteers. Based on how the situation about COVID-19 has
progressed, the measures enacted at the federal, provincial and municipal levels,
and the general pattern of response emerging in the world around us, we felt it
prudent to follow those directions and do our part to minimize the risk of exposure.
We will reopen our offices as soon as it is safe to do so following direction from the
Public Health Agency of Canada as well as provincial and local directives. We will
be accessing this on a week by week basis.

Service Delivery

First and foremost, I want you to know that despite this, we are still here to
strengthen individuals, families and communities through responsive leadership and
innovative programs. We have a robust business continuity plan in place which has
allowed us to be nimble and adaptive in response to this ever-evolving situation
with as little disruption to our services and operations as possible. Staff are
accessible by Zoom, phone and email and will continue working to provide on-going
support to those who need it the most.

Clients in groups that have been suspended can still be in regular communication
with our program staff to ensure they are receiving the supports they require.
You can reach out to us at 306-757-6675 by phone or email us at We may be working with reduce staff so we thank
you for your patience and grace during this time.

Our Intake Team is also available to help navigate resources and can be reached at Please feel free to share this information with
people you know who may be struggling.

Stay Connected

Family Service Regina will be utilizing our social media channels and our website to
keep our community up to date.

I encourage you all to stay connected with us, and with those you care about,
during these very uncertain times. Caring, human connection is the most effective
strategy to the stress and anxiety so many of us are feeling right now.

I’ve seen our community come together time and time again in times of adversity
to ensure the most vulnerable aren’t left behind. We will continue to build strong
families together. Please take care of yourselves and each other, and reach out if
there’s anything we can do for you.

Jukebox Mania 2017

The 2017 10th Annual Celebration of Jukebox Mania held in Regina raised the most money in event history- bringing the ten-year total for the event to over $167,000. This unique event took place at The Turvey Centre on Friday, September 15, 2017, and brought together local Law Enforcement, local Celebrities, and the public. Funds raised at the event benefit Family Service Regina and our Domestic Violence Support and Education programs.

The five-hour evening saw music trivia enthusiasts dress up as their favorite bands and battle for the “Best & Brightest” Jukebox Mania award. It was an exciting and fun evening that raised much-needed funds and awareness for Family Service Regina and the work we do for our community’s most vulnerable and at risk.

We are elated to not only host another successful event that will empower us to continue to provide programs and services to victims of violence but to also be able to fulfill our mission in creating a healthier Saskatchewan.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank iQMetrix and Both companies have played an active role in the success of this event and continue to lend their skills and support to various areas within our organization. Both of them have been the driving force behind Jukebox Mania and have given their time and talent since 2015.
