Family Well-Being Program
Doodem Mino Bemaadzing Nokiiwin Naakingewin

An early intervention program grounded in Anishinabek culture, values, language, and traditions.

Programming designed to improve the outcomes and opportunities for children and youth by encouraging the use of wholistic, community-driven approaches that help keep our children connected to their families, communities, and culture.

Minimize the risk of involvement in child welfare through:
  • Support;
  • Culturally-based resources; and
  • Capacity-building training.

We address the root cause(s) of violence and trauma, and reduce the over representation of Anishinabek children and youth in child welfare and youth justice systems.

Community-Based Programming
