Community Complex Navigator

Under the Ministry of Child and Youth Services, SLFNHA is funded for Community Complex Navigator positions.  The Community Complex Navigator Program provides intensive case management and coordination for complex special needs children and youth up to the age of 18 years. These children may present with complex/multiple needs (physical, mental, and challenges) that require services that are not normally provided by a children’s mental health program.  These children and youth fit the definition of special needs when they require services beyond the family’s capacity.

Jordan’s Principle

SLFNHA has recently been funded through Jordan’s Principle (First Nation Inuit Health Branch) to expand the Complex Care Case Coordinator Program.  This new initiative supports a full delivery of services at SLFNHA will ensure that First Nations children, youth and families in our area have equitable access to needed developmental services.  Our vision for service delivery will also involve the development of a culturally sensitive service model for Normative Rehabilitation Services ensuring that service is culturally safe and utilizes traditional practices.
