Investigation and Assessment Unit

We recognize that sometimes stress in families gets to the breaking point. Normal patterns of family living break down and children find themselves without the support, guidance and protection they require for healthy growth and development. In some situations the parents, while present are unable to cope with their children's needs and simply "burn out". This can be due to many different life stressors some of which may include grief, addictions, mental/physical health issues, breakup of a relationship or family violence. Weechi-it-te-win Family Services strives to support the healing and recovery from these difficult and overwhelming situations while ensuring our paramount purpose of keeping children safe.

The Investigation & Assessment Unit is the point of access for the Weechi-it-te-win Family Services. This could include new allegations of child maltreatment, file transfers from other agencies or new allegations of child maltreatment on an open case.

The unit is comprised of the following individuals;

Beatrice McMillen - Investigation & Assessment Worker

Andrea Debungee - Investigation and Assessment Worker
