Aboriginal Headstart Program
The Aboriginal Head Start Program supports early intervention strategies to address the learning and developmental needs of young children living on-reserve. The programming is centered around six components: education; health promotion; culture and language; nutrition; social support; and parental/family involvement.
This program is delivered to children from the age of 3 up to when they enter kindergarten. Children in the program are given opportunities to develop self-confidence and a greater desire for learning.

The goal of the Home and Community Care Program is to help Elders, people with chronic illness, or anyone incapacitated or with limited mobility due to acute injuries, remain in their homes and in the community as long as possible.
