WJS Canada’s residential programs provide a network of staff and home based resources for First Nation, Metis and Inuit (FNMI) children and youth who for various reasons, cannot remain in their family homes. These programs focus on the preservation and unification of family, after-care, family mediation, visits and planning. We strive to strengthen children and youth ties to families and community while keeping them connected to and empowered by their culture.
Specialized shared living, fostering homes and residential homes focus on transitioning, assessing and stabilization, with supports and collaborations in daily living, community inclusion, therapeutic interventions, family preservation and unification, care plan implementation, education and transition planning all built on the platform of Trauma Informed Care.
Enhanced caregiver homes promote skill development in children or youth with behavioural and emotional issues.
