Family Development Department
The Lheidli T’enneh Health Department provides outreach services to individuals and the community that promote stability and fosters independence. The Family Development Coordinator works closely with the Lheidli Health and Education departments to offer therapeutic prevention and intervention for the community as well as host community events. These approaches and assessments are member-driven and community based, helping to guide the programs with a holistic approach when providing support.
Members are encouraged to contact the Aboriginal Family Development Coordinator to discuss individual and community needs. If you’d like to keep up-to-date with the latest events hosted by the Family Development Department, you can follow them on social media.
Family Development Coordinator
Tasheena Seymour is the interim Manager for the Family Development Department. She is always working with clients, transporting them to important appointments or court dates of offering them any support they need, whether it’s just checking in or helping struggling parents.
Even though she is consistently busy, Tasheena is rarely in the office. That’s because she’s usually out shopping for one of the family development programs or facilitating them. With everyone attesting to how beneficial and enjoyable the programs the department puts on are, Tasheena does her best to ensure that as many people as possible can participate by driving them to and from them if need be, a testament to the dedication she has to the Lheidli community.
Tasheena was born and raised in the Lheidli community. She attended the same programs ever since her daughter was four years old where she found them to be a valuable means of support. When an assistant position became available in 2012, Tasheena saw it as an opportunity for her to continue supporting those same programs for other new mothers as well as families and individuals.
