Family Wellbeing Program
Family Well-Being refers to living in a state of health and happiness. Well-Being can look different for everyone within their own unique goals, ambitions and personalities. For the Family Well-Being program, it is a state of being comfortable, happy and healthy as a family.
The program is designed to deliver culturally appropriate services and support to Indigenous families, children, youth, adults and Elders. This program is a prevention service program that is intended to reduce violence in families, reduce the need to bring children/youth into the child welfare system, reduce the risk of youth entering the justice system and to improve the overall health and well-being of the community.
