The program offers support for Aboriginal Families in the West Kootenay and Boundary region and offers cultural connections for Aboriginal children and youth in collaboration with MCFD. This program supports families for permanency and the prevention of removal advocating for the child, youth and/or families needs.
We work with Aboriginal families, children and youth in care: to develop Cultural Life Books, to locate and support extended family members, and to advocate for placements of Aboriginal children and youth in care of their families. The Family Connections Program also offers collaboration, advocacy, support and referrals to other local Services.
