First Nations children, families, and communities will be healthy, strong, empowered and enjoy an enhanced quality of life.
In partnership with our member Agencies, the Southern First Nations Network of Care makes a difference in the quality of life of all children and youth by ensuring their protection through the provision of safe homes with responsible caregivers, promoting the wellness of families and strengthening of First Nations Peoples and communities. Services and resources will align with community needs; and activities will be more focused on prevention than crisis management. It will serve as a model of successful self-governance that will inspire similar levels of professionalism, compassion and effectiveness among all agencies.
The Southern First Nations Network of Care receives its mandate from the First Nations in Southern Manitoba and through The Child and Family Services Authorities Act (CFSAA). The Southern Network along with the other three CFS Authorities are responsible for the establishment and management of a province-wide service delivery system. This includes ensuring that services are delivered to Southern First Nation Citizens throughout the province, as well as people who choose the Southern Network.
