Kenora-Rainy River Districts Child and Family Services is a non-profit community organization funded by the Government of Ontario, legally mandated to protect children and youth from abuse and neglect through the Child and Family Services Act. The Agency spans two districts, Kenora and Rainy River, which is a large portion of Northwestern Ontario. This relatively new organization (2011) is a result of the merging of two organizations (Family & Children’s Services of the District of Rainy River and Kenora-Patricia Child and Family Services) with a rich and lengthy history in each of their districts. The Agency offers many services to children and families including: Child Welfare, Children’s Mental Health, and Developmental Services.
Our agency provides counselling, teaching and support programs to help create safe and loving homes for children. We work with families to offer guidance and techniques for them to become better parents and for their children to develop to their full potential. We also work with community partners to ensure the families we work with have access to other programs and services specific to their needs.
