Scw'exmx Child and Family Services Society (SCFSS) has been historically a child protection agency providing support programs and services to the Nicola Valley since 1994. SCFSS is a fully delegated agency that receives funding from both the Ministry of Child and Family Development and Indigenous Services Canada.
Today, SCFSS accepts the responsibility of strategic change in a significant shift from protection to prevention as led and engaged by our five (5) Member communities. We develop and tailor resources to exceed the differential needs of each community. We work to build community capacity and draw upon nłeʔkepmx and syilx culture and language to strengthen unity within SCFSS team, community members and leadership. Our strategies ensure decisions, services and programs are centered on community input, identification of unique needs and targeted demographics.
