The goal of DOCFS, both long-term and on a daily basis, is to build up and support families so that children do not have to come into care. This emphasis on family is a cornerstone of DOCFS policy that distinguishes it from many non-First Nation agencies.

Our "whole perspective" is that keeping contact with family is really important. That we never give up on family. This is what the DOCFS is all about. This is who we are.

But the protection of children is first and foremost, so if the parents can’t take care of them, if the parents need help or if the children need to be taken into care, DOCFS is there to help.

As such the DOCFS offers a wide range of programs and services to help promote healthy and happy families.
