Child and Family Services
Seabird Island's Child and Family Services encompasses three programs. These programs are:
The Seabird Island Band’s Child and Family services operates two homes where children are in-care with the Ministry of Children and Family Development. Full time staffs provide daily care to group home children in a safe and nurturing environment. This allows First Nations children to live within their home community and gives them the opportunity to participate in their culture.
The Seabird Island Band’s Child and Family services operates a home specifically to provide 24 hour daily support and life skills workshops for youth effected by Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
Child and Family Advocacy
The Seabird Island Band’s Child and Family Services offer child and family advocacy services to families with child protection issues. The advocates role is to attend child protection intakes, meetings and case conferences as needed or requested by the family.
The goals of the Child and Family Services programs are to ensure First Nations families and their children have a voice when dealing with child protection, as well as FASD.
