Programs for Family Wellness
Kikosewin’s Hub offers an array of services, supports and programming that supports children, youth and families aligning in three core areas:
- Child Development and Well-being
- Caregiver Capacity Building (by creating parenting opportunities and experiences to strengthen parenting abilities)
- Social connections and supports
Working with Central Neighbourhood Centre for Childen, Youth, and Families (NCCYF), Kahkiyaw staff administer Family Wellness Services such as: cultural connection, supported access, sharing circles, family group conferences, family wellness plans, strength-based family assessments, referrals to community resources, advocacy, and kinship support. Family Wellness Workers are assigned to a family to work on specific needs of each child, youth or family in need.
Sacred Circle provides support to the more complex families through a collaborative effort between the Child Welfare Workers and the Support Workers from Bent Arrow. The program was nurtured and developed through collaboration and partnership. Together, we provide family services to both status and non-status families in the form of
- Family Supports
- Family Aid
- Youth Interventions
We support Kinship caregivers and our Foster homes within our program.
