Prevention Policy and Standards

SFNFCI has been offering services to Prevention since 2015.  The Prevention Working Group collectively has created the following Saskatchewan prevention policy and standards.

Community-based prevention standards reflect the common goal of strengthening families to prevent children and youth from coming into care and are embedded in strength-based practices. The standards support the inherent culture of all First Nations people.
