Ponoka Family & Community Support Services

Ponoka Wheelchair Van

Operated by Ponoka FCSS since June 2016

The Ponoka Wheelchair Van Society was formed in 1977 by a group of concerned citizens who recognized the need to provide a reliable service to transport handicapped people in the Town and County of Ponoka.

While there have been many changes within the Society over the past 40 years, the original mandate "to transport wheelchair confined or persons who could not otherwise be transported with comfort and dignity by other standard carriers such as personal vehicles and taxis" remain the guiding focus for the Society.

A small user fee plus donations and memorials from individual persons or service clubs; and local Municipal and Provincial government grants all help to defray the day to day operational costs.

Donations or Memorials can be left at any of the following locations:

  • F.C.S.S Office (8:30 - 12:00; 1:00 - 4:30)
  • Ponoka Funeral Home

or by mail to:
