The Chimo CSD Family Wellness Program provides integrated, safe, effective, and creative services for families. Being integrated means we work cooperatively with many other child, youth, and family services – this means quicker access to supports. Our teams include a manager, supervisors, Family Wellness Coordinators (FWC), and Family Wellness Coach (FWC). All team members have a formal degree or diploma, have experience in the human services field, and adhere to a code of ethical standards.
“Our children, youth, and families deserve our best!”

Who we work with…

Chimo’s CSD Family Wellness Program works with children, youth, and families who have had a file open with Child and Family Services after April 13, 2015. Files may be open under several statuses, including Family Enhancement Agreements, Supervision Orders, and Custody and Guardianship Agreements and Orders. The families and individuals we work with may be experiencing various challenges, but will be supported to accomplish their goals regarding their family’s safety and wellness.

What we do…

The Chimo Family Wellness team works in partnership with the Edmonton Region CFS to support children, youth, and families to become safe, happy, healthy, and well. Our goal is to:

  1. Support vulnerable children to live successfully in the community.
  2. Reunite children in temporary care with their families quickly.
  3. Place children in permanent care into permanent homes as quickly as possible.
  4. Help youth transition to adulthood successfully.
  5. Ensure Aboriginal children live in culturally appropriate placements and receive culturally appropriate services.

 

The Chimo CSD Kinship Care Program provides support to family caregivers for children in the care of the government. We work cooperatively with Chimo’s CSD Family Wellness Program, Children’s Services, and other community agencies to ensure that children in care, and their caregivers, have the supports they need to remain healthy, happy, and safe.

Who we work with…

Chimo’s CSD Kinship Care Program works with all kinship care family files that opened in our designated regions after April 13, 2015. Through the provision of financial supports, referrals to community resources, and advocacy, we support kinship caregivers to safely care for the child(ren) placed with them and to be actively involved in the reunification process of the child(ren) and their family of origin.
