Vancouver Aboriginal Child and Family Services ensures the well-being of Indigenous children and youth who have come into a continuing care order. Our approach is situated with the child at the centre of their circle of support, surrounded by family and community.
Together, we hold a shared vision of first reducing the numbers of Indigenous youth in care through a commitment of developing child specific lifelong plans with an emphasis on returning to family, extended family and community and secondly to ensuring that those children that are leaving the system are doing so with a strong Indigenous identity and a leadership vision of their future.
Youth Advisory Committee
The youth advisory committee is a strong and committed group of current and former youth in or from our care that are committed to advocacy for change in the care system and ensuring that VACFSS holds a youth voice.
