The Mnaasged Vision
The Creator has brought us together to share our gifts with one another for the benefit of our Nations’ children. All children are gifts from our Creator and will be honoured by our vision through strengthening the spirit of our people by promoting and empowering healthy lifestyles. The strength is in our values, way of life, and understanding the spirit of a child. All children have the right to feel loved, nurtured and to grow up in a safe, healthy home, that embraces family and community.
One of the original core Indigenous beliefs is, “The Creator has entrusted us with the sacred responsibility for protecting and bringing to life the original spiritual gift – our children – who need to be connected to our customs, culture, values and beliefs as the foundational attribute of empowered self.” This core belief has been disrupted and damaged by the colonial system, including the residential school system.
Mnaasged Child and Family Services aspires to meet this responsibility and to enhance the social harmony in our communities by implementing best practices and shared responsibility to support and improve the quality of life for our families now and for the next generations.
