|Treatment Foster Care Program|
Treatment Foster Care is an effective model of care
that brings together professional treatment services for children and youth who
are overcoming difficulties with the strengths of caring individuals, couples,
or families from the community.
The Program serves both boys and girls of all ages. All the children in the program are unable to live with their birth families for a variety of reasons. As a result, many struggle with forming healthy relationships, acting out behaviours, mental health issues, and unresolved grief and trauma. Where possible, siblings will be placed together.
Children in the program may access and benefit from the support programs at Knowles Centre, including the Biimautaziiwin Aboriginal Cultural Program, Sexual Abuse Treatment Program, psychiatric consultation, John G. Stewart School, and camp in the Whiteshell. As well, Knowles Centre offers a family suite for arranged visits between clients and their birth families.
Children may be referred directly to the program by child welfare agencies or through the Provincial Placement Desk and may be from Winnipeg, or other communities from across Canada.
To refer a child or youth to our program, please email or fax a social history or placement request directly to our Program Coordinator:
