The CCP has the goal to enhance the family unit for members of the Rainy River First Nations. The family services unit provides family support services, repatriation, outreach, access, mental health counseling and protection services.
The community care team of Rainy River First Nations collaborates with Weechi-it-te-win Family Services (WFS) through a consolidated service agreement. This agreement devolves child welfare control and responsibility for the provision of family support and child welfare services to the Rainy River community, giving Rainy River First Nations the jurisdiction and responsibility for the full delivery of services.
