WHO WE ARE

We are currently mandated thru the province and our collective Chiefs to provide child welfare services to five communities and prevention services to fourteen First Nations in Treaty #3 northern territory. Our brother agency to the south, Weechiittewin Family Services provides the same service provision to fourteen First Nations in the southern territory.

Additionally we carry Service Agreements with Kenora-Rainy River Districts Child and Family Services for 6 First Nations in Treaty #3 north, as an alternative to mainstream service provision, until jurisdiction is officially transferred from the Province for all First Nations to be delivered services in a culturally safe manner.
