The Purpose of our Family Services Program is to provide support to our Children, Youth and their Families who are experiencing difficulties with parenting and who are potentially at risk of family or placement breakdown.
To Provide culturally relevant Support Services designed to improve and better inform Family Case planning, and, to further help reduce risk through more effective decision making.
Our Mandate: To improve outcomes for St’át’imc and other Aboriginal children on and off-reserve by providing prevention and early intervention services and supports to either prevent or safely return them to the care of their parents. Where this is not possible, to find temporary or permanent placements for them with relatives and/or community members that will be in their best interest.
