Native Child and Family Services of Toronto (NCFST) recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic has created a challenging environment for families. With the closures of schools, daycares, and other services, children are increasingly vulnerable to family stress. As a provider of essential services, NCFST is here to support vulnerable families through these difficult times.

Our mandated Child and Family Wellbeing services continue to operate 24 hours 7 days a week: 

  • We continue to provide services to families through regular check-ins and provision of concrete assistance whenever needed.

  • We continue to support the foster and customary care community with increased financial assistance and additional resources for children and youth during COVID-19.

  • We continue to provide parenting support (Ninoshe) services for enrolled families.

  • The Ode’l Min Health Clinic is now operating virtually every Monday for community consults.

  • The Tikinagan Pre-Post Natal team continues to serve expecting and recent community mothers and families.
