Guided by our Elders, we will continue to work to ensure that the best interests of all children are paramount and recognized and protected. From the Elders teachings, we live with the knowledge that “OUR CHILDREN ARE GIFTS FROM THE CREATOR” and we must stand together to ensure they are raised in a safe and nurturing environment. It is the agencies understanding that it takes a community to raise a child, thus, parents, guardians and the community must be involved.
