Workers attend child welfare investigations with the Children’s Aid Society to provide assistance and support to families. Workers will provide assistance and support to children and families to resolve child welfare crises and co-operatively plan and carry out actions designed to divert future, similar crises. All services are voluntary.
The In-Home Support program is based on the premise that it is best for children to grow up in their own families and, that in families where there is child maltreatment, skilled professionals can assist families to learn more appropriate ways to raise their children. The program provides more intensive In-Home Support to families, including extended family, living on one of the Anishnawbek communities.
