Southeast Child & Family Services

Agency Overview

Southeast Child & Family Services implements initiatives to empower the communities to re-establish the Anishinaabe family and child care system that is based in the values, customs, and traditions of the communities served by our Agency.

We work in partnership with the First Nations leadership to advocate for systemic changes that will enable the services to focus on family preservation, family reunification, customary and kinship care, healing of the communities, and revitalizing the structures that existed prior to the mainstream child welfare system was imposed.

Our organization has been providing services since 1982.
