- To improve the quality and effectiveness of social services to Aboriginal Children and families in need.
- To develop and provide programs which will preserve and strengthen the Aboriginal families.
- To develop community awareness and responsibility for the well being of Aboriginal children and families.
A primary focus of Métis Child & Family Services Society is to reduce the number of Métis and other Aboriginal children from coming into the care of Alberta Child and Youth Services.
We accomplish this by ensuring that our programs and services are responsive and accountable to the community. We offer an alternate approach to intervention and prevention that holistic and family centered.
