About Us


Scw’exmx Child and Family Services(SCFSS) strives to ensure an excellent standard of service delivery and strength based approaches under the leadership and direction or our member communities. 


We recognize and understand the challenges that each of our communities face and the strengths that they all have to offer.  SCFSS has endeavored to work in collaboration with our five member bands to keep families together through community based service delivery, advocacy, respect and education.


Our team at SCFSS has continued to move forward with their effort to provide a high standard of practice and develop a local service delivery model that respects that ultimate authority for the health and well-being of children rests with their families and caregivers.
