Family Development

The Aboriginal Family Development Coordinator provides outreach services to individuals and the community that promotes stability and fosters independence. The Aboriginal Family Development Coordinator works closely with Lheidli T'enneh Health and Education departments to offer therapeutic prevention and intervention that is appropriate to individual and community needs: community events, home visits, advocacy, life skills, and out-referrals. Approaches and assessments are member-driven and community based.
