WE OFFER A RANGE OF SERVICES TO CHILDREN AND FAMILIES

Our services promote health and well-being and facilitate the restoring of harmony and balance to the family unit.

The purpose of the Family Enhancement Program is to advance the Minisowin goals of helping Norway House Cree Nation families strengthen their parenting and family skills and thus preventing children from coming into agency care.

Foster Care and Alternative Care

The team recruits, trains and supports foster families in the community. They also arranges to provide temporary and long term placements for children in care as directed by The Child and Family Services Act and Programs Standards Manual.

The permanent ward unit experiences a rewarding sense of accomplishment engaging with children and youth. We work hard to maintain and provide a safety net for all our youth. We are on call 24/7 on-call for our youth if they require immediate assistance. We will continue to prioritize the needs of children, youth and their families to ensure the best possible outcomes.

The UNITY program is an ongoing program that provides numerous activities for high risk children in care. The program assists our youth in developing the skills they will need as they near adulthood. This program works primarily with the permanent ward unit and the children in care.
