DeWayne Robinson, Family Support Worker

I am the Moricetown representative for families that are working through Children’s Services. I support these families and facilitate any events that can help bring families closer together.

For instance, at our Strengthening Families Workshop, which runs every Tuesday evenings from 4:30 - 7 P.M. (until Christmas), we help with parenting skills, give the children a voice and ideas for using that voice properly in the household and in the community, and we teach everyone to take care of themselves.

We also have some pretty good facilitators in Jason James and Bertha Pierre.

The rest of my job deals with children who’ve been apprehended for a number of reasons and are working with the Ministry of Children and Family Development. I assist so the children stay within their family, or at least within their community. I assist with the cultural and background and traditions with the Wit’suwit’en. My territory ranges from Vancouver to the Northwest Coast, and as far as Ontario. We have Wit’suwit’en living at some distances!

I love the opportunity to be able to advocate on their behalf. I have seven sisters and five brothers, and we were raised right. I want to ensure that the children I work with have better opportunities than I had when growing up.

I'm in the office Monday - Friday, 8:30 - 4:30, but always available for community events, too.
