Strong hearts and minds, strong families, beautiful children, strong community networks.
We want to see healthy, strong families providing a nurturing place for children and where the whole community—elders, leaders, helpers, grandmothers, grandfathers, mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, husbands and wives—work together to build the best place possible for all children.
Building circles of care, protecting children, empowering families, strengthening community networks.
Our agency is built upon the idea that the way to help aboriginal families is to support them in caring for themselves and one another. It’s an idea rooted in Aboriginal family values, beliefs and cultural traditions.
Our purpose is to protect children from maltreatment and to support families to care for their children at home. We take a thorough and culturally sensitive approach that focuses on preserving and reunifying families. When this is not possible, we provide long-term care for children, while striving to maintain a strong connection between the child and their extended family and home community.
Our children, families and communities have the right to be involved in child welfare decisions affecting them.
