Child and Family Services

Loving our children by protecting their wellbeing and building healthy families

Nxwezil̓tems is the Ucwalmícwts word that means, “We love our children.” Nxwezil̓tems is not only the name of SSHS’s newest program; it is also the foundation of the program’s work. Loving SSHS’s youngest members means ensuring their health needs are addressed, and their families are preserved and given the tools for success.

This self-referred program, established in 2019, provides one-to-one support, as well as groups and workshops for children and families. Recognizing that secure community connections are essential to good health, Nxwezil̓tems grounds its activities in Stl’atl’imx culture, looking to the past to create a strong future.
