We see the love that grows when people believe in each other. We see the strength people feel when they believe in themselves.
The inuksuk is a symbol of our interdependent responsibilities to create a better way for all of us.
It is our privilege to share in the lives of the families we serve.
Consider the ripple effect that one person's healing journey can have on family members, friends and the community at large.
"I am on a healing journey to wholeness that I could not have travelled alone."
"I entered Catholic Family Services with a cloud of darkness overshadowing my life and discovered a beacon of light."
We offer professional counselling and support services to families in the Battlefords and surrounding area. Our purpose is to assist individuals and families to build on their strengths and find positive ways to understand and act when faced with challenges in their lives. We are a non-profit charitable organization operating under a volunteer Board of Directors. We offer service regardless of religious affiliation or economic situation.

The Battlefords and Area Community Threat Assessment and Support Protocol
Catholic Family Services is one of the partner agencies to this protocol.
"Ensuring safe schools
requires far more than just
risk assessment procedures.
It requires evidence based, preventative Safe School Climate initiatives,
strong student/staff relationships, ongoing training and refining of all policies, procedures and protocols that promote
social responsible behavior."
