Boozhoo, aaniin. Welcome to the Weechi-it-te-win Family Services Website

In 1982, Weechi-it-te-win was founded as an "Anishinaabe Alternative" and we continue to envision the revitalization of a system of care that is rooted in the customs, traditions and values of the Anishinaabe people of Treaty #3.

Services provided by Weechi-it-te-win Family Services include: child care, alternative care, family preservation, psychological services, capacity building, family counselling, outpatient treatment for families, developmental support services, cultural support, and youth in transition programs. These services are available to members of our nine (9) Partner First Nations residing in the Rainy River District in Northwestern, Ontario. In accordance with the original vision of our founding fathers, Weechi-it-te-win's child welfare and family preservation funding has been devolved to each of our Partner First Nations and as such these services are delivered at the community, by the community.

It is also our sacred responsibility to repatriate children who have been brought into care outside of Weechi-it-te-win's jurisdiction and reunite them with their families, communities and culture.

The Website presents an overall framework of the organizational structure, operating philosophy, decentralized service delivery model, and bi-cultural services that Weechi-it-te-win has to offer. We have also included direct links to our Family Healing Program, Developmental Support Services and Tele-Mental Health Program.

It is our hope that the Weechi-it-te-win website will be an accessible resource for families and service providers seeking information for child welfare, mental health and healing, in addition to cultural services/resources that are provided by Weechi-it-te-win.
