The honour of assisting our children and families has been entrusted to Kina Gbezhgomi Child and Family Services by the United Chiefs and Councils of Mnidoo Mnising & Wikwemikong Unceded Territory. The core objective of KGCFS is to serve the member First Nation communities through prevention and protection activities that are designed to culturally maintain and nourish the dignity and integrity of the Anishinabek family system by offering various supportive choices. Moreover, providing services through a culturally serviced delivery model to families to move towards healthy family lifestyles for their Anishinabek children, families, and communities.
KGCFS delivers numerous services to all children, youth, and families within and surrounding its seven member First Nations; six of which are situated on Manitoulin Island within Mnidoo Mnising, and Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory. KGCFS serves member First Nations residing within the Districts of Sudbury and Manitoulin who are residing off-reserve. KGCFS also serves other First Nation communities and self-identified First Nation members residing within the municipal Districts of Sudbury and Manitoulin, with the exception of members from the North Shore Tribal Council and Wabnoong Tribal Council. KGCFS also serves Nipissing First Nation community members within the Districts of Sudbury and Manitoulin.
This designation, effective April 1, 2015 is another positive step in our shared priority of empowering Aboriginal communities in Ontario to provide services that are responsive to their customs and traditions, and that build a better future for Aboriginal children, youth and families.
