A family living in a state of wellbeing, which is balanced and in keeping with cultural traditions, will ensure that strong and heathy children grow up to lead our future generations.
Our program’s mission is to provide families living on reserve in Saik’uz, Nadleh Whut’en, Stellat’en, Takla, Yekooche, Lake Babine Nation, Burns Lake Band, Wet’suwet’en, Nee Tahi Buhn, Skin Tyee and Cheslatta with access to support and resources to ensure the holistic wellness and safety needs of their children are met.
Goal of the Program
The goal of the program is to keep children and families together and increase the family’s ability to safely care and nurture their children.
Support may be provided in the family’s home, in the community, or at the office of a variety of other service providers.
We currently provide early childhood development programming, based on the life-cycle model, providing support to families from preconception until a child in the home is 19 years of age or older.
Our program is co-funded by the Ministry of Child and Family Development and the First Nations Health Authority. Services are voluntary and free of charge to clients who fit within our mandate of service provision. We receive referrals from clients themselves, and also from Social Workers, Medical Professionals, Legal Professionals, Child Care Providers, Teachers, Principals, Counsellors and Women’s Shelters, or any other source.
