Our child welfare division focuses on providing trauma informed services for our community. We believe by providing services for our most vulnerable families as early as possible we help to prevent child maltreatment and strengthen families protective capacity.
Child welfare services include:
- Prevention and intervention services for children, youth and families at risk of involvement with child welfare.
- Youth in conflict services reduce or eliminate conflicts between youth and their family members or community when conflicts affect the youth's well-being, the normal functioning of the family, or the well-being of the community.
- Child protection services are provided to protect children whose physical, mental or emotional wellbeing is threatened by the actions or omissions of parents, legal guardians, custodians or persons responsible for providing our of home care.
