BTC ICFS believes that the Family Council Committee(s) play an important role to the community development of prevention services at the community level. Our agency also believes that solutions and ideas must be community driven, in order to achieve success and reaching goals. Committee members reside in their respected First Nation community and are aware first-hand of community issues, concerns and problems that are encountered on a daily basis.
Upon review & consultation with all Family Council Committee(s), this model was implemented in the new year of January 2009.
"It takes a community to raise a child."
