Alternative Placement Services

Kinship Care Program

Within the Metis community there is a long history of extended family and community members providing care, nurturance and protection for children whose parents were unable to provide care. The philosophy of MCFCS is grounded in these traditions and beliefs, with the Kinship Care program working to keep children within their own family networks and communities where possible.

Foster Care and Specialized Foster Care

Where children are unable to remain within their own family networks, MCFCS strives to develop community resources and living environments that nurture and empower. Community members who believe in supporting children and youth to flourish and achieve their potential are actively sought in all regions.

Emergency Placement Resources

MCFCS developed Eagles Nest, a short term, emergency assessment placement resource that accommodates four males 12-17 years of age. Gladys Cook Home is a long-term placement resource for females 12-17 years of age.
