Family Preservation Program

  

The family preservation program promotes the safety and well-being of Métis children and families as well as preservation of family unity where children's safety can be supported. The program works to maintain permanency for children by empowering families to achieve or sustain independence and self-sufficiency.

  

One of the many goals of the program is to prevent out-of-home placement of Métis children. These support services can be provided or coordinated with other service agencies to assist families in achieving or maintaining family safety, stability, independence and unity.
