CSFS is committed to the healing and empowerment of Indigenous people by providing health, social, and legal services. We use a holistic model to develop programs which empower our community members and help improve their overall quality of life. We also provide training and skills that people can use for a lifetime. Bridging to Employment, for example, helps participants overcome barriers and provides valuable life skills and employment education.
Here are just a few of our many programs:
- Addictions Recovery
- Bridging to Employment
- Family Empowerment Supported Visit
- Mobile Diabetes
- Youth Services
While working at CSFS, not only will you help empower people, you will also gain a new world perspective. Being culturally-aware is a must at CSFS, but if you don’t have that worldview yet, fear not! As part of the onboarding process, CSFS curates a cultural training program: Nowh Guna’.
Nowh Guna’ (Our Way) teaches our non-indigenous staff members to have a foot in both worlds. Not only do you learn about the historical context and traditional Carrier worldviews, you also gain tools to combat issues such as racism.
Mick Harper, a new hire in the Communications department, says that “the people at CSFS are great to work with. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The organization strongly believes in a positive culture and working environment. They encourage employee development and offer programs that show investment in their employees. It’s an inclusive environment for all, and the workplace morale is fantastic.”
If you would like to join our ever-growing team, CSFS currently has a number of job openings in Prince George, Vanderhoof, and Burns Lake. We are currently looking for an Integrated Services Social Worker, an occupational therapist, and a Licensed Practical Nurse, just to name a few.
