Retirement Announcement

Dear Friends, Families and Foster Families of Animikii Ozoson Child and Family Services

It is with some sadness I write to inform you of my decision to retire as Executive Director on January 31, 2019; I will definitely miss you.

Over the years I have come to know you and your families and will miss seeing you at our events or in the community.  Many of you have taken the time to call, write or just stop a moment to share the news of your family or changes in your own lives.  I have always felt very honored to receive these gifts.

For foster parents who give so selflessly and from your heart I say Chi Miigwetch/Thank You for stepping in to provide care and nurturing to our little ones until they can be reunited with family or community.  I know it is not easy to let go when you open your heart but many of you have shown great strength and courage by choosing to walk alongside us in support of our families.

For our youth in care,  I will miss watching you grow.  It has been one of the joys I have received watching you navigate a tough system and not give up on your goals.  I know you will always be welcome at Animikii.

Thank you for trusting us to be part of your journey.

Wishing you all a safe holiday season and all the best for 2019.


Bonnie Kocsis BSW,RSW

Executive Director
