Our Mandate

We work in collaboration with the family and community to ensure:

Mission Statement

We require child and family service primarily because:

  1. We recognize that there are children living outside their familial homes and they have a right to maintain family, community, and cultural connections
  2. We recognize that some parents need support at different stages in the family life cycle
  3. Our history of colonization and trauma has created multiple factors that directly affect the ability and capacity of some families to provide ongoing safety and nurturing of children
  4. We acknowledge that parenting is a very challenging and rewarding process and we want to support this responsibility through a range of options from a cultural perspective for parents who require our services
  5. The needs of children and families vary in complexity; therefore, approaches to intervention must be culturally relevant, effective, and flexible
  6. We believe that programs designed and delivered by our own people is the most appropriate for facilitating family and community health
  7. Community resources are needed to prevent family breakdowns

Our Vision

Our vision is that family systems will be restored based on cultural beliefs. We envision our community as a place where our people will be nurtured and guided by the traditional teachings of our elders. Our people will be empowered to carry forward the cultural practices of caring into the future. We are following the path of our ancestors.

Dedication to Nancy Tom

In Memory of Nancy Tom 1953 -2012

nancytom“Let us remember that it takes a whole community to raise a child and that we need to always be aware that little eyes are watching and listening and that whatever you do they will do also. We need every one of you out there to make a difference in a child’s life today: perhaps just by lending a listening ear, praising your child or any other child for the little things they do, telling them it’s okay if they make a mistake, respecting them for who they are and not being judgmental, gently talking to them about the facts of life, making time to do something special just for them such as birthdays or going out for lunch, offering them a safe place if they need one, and the list could go on and on. These are the basic things we need to be aware of each and every day because it sure doesn’t cost much to tell a child they’re worth it. If each of us that are here today could do this then we are on the road to building our Nations to where we once were as strong caring families who stepped up to care for their own. Mussi Cho for listening and my prayers are with you all."
