About Us

Restoring Balance provides culturally intensive support services for children, youth and families around the Nicola Valley. We provide opportunities to engage local Elders and knowledge keepers, willing to share their Nlaka’pamux or Sylix wisdom and teachings.


Restoring balance also promotes out-of-care options by identifying Kith and Kin families for children.  We offer support for caregivers who are willing to provide a safe, caring and appropriate family environment for our children and youth who come into their care.  


Our goal is to reduce the number of First Nations children in care or entering care by providing information and cultural supports relevant to the child, youth and families, while addressing identified safety risks and issues.
