A Wholistic Approach
(Mind, Body, Emotions and Spirit)
We believe that all aspects of life must be taken into account in arriving at good decisions with children, youth and families. In our work, we will demonstrate respect for children, youth, families, communities, staff, Alternative Care Providers, Elders, traditions and culture.
- We strive to place the needs of children, youth, families and communities at the centre of our service and decision making.
- We will listen and we will respond to what our children, youth, families and communities need.
- We will accept our responsibility to help empower the communities we serve.
- We will support and meet their needs in ways that will facilitate the growth and development of children, youth, families and communities.
Dnaagdawenmag Binnoojiiyag will be truthful in their interactions with children, youth, families and communities. We recognize that each child, youth, family, First Nation, Inuit and Métis community is unique and our Service Model respects those differences. Dnaagdawenmag Binnoojiiyag Child & Family Services recognizes Cultural Services are an integral component of individual, family, and community healing and should be accessible to every Indigenous child, youth and family requesting services.
Our Circle of Care is a visual representation of Dnaagdawenmag Binnoojiiyag Child & Family Services. This Circle shows who we are, without hierarchy, and how we work together to serve those in the innermost circles, children, youth and families. Our values can be found on either side of the Circle, they serve as a reminder to keep them at the forefront of our minds
