Holistic Family Focused Care

Blue Thunderbird Family Care's vision is for an indigenous community where children and families will thrive and care providers will reclaim traditional ways of providing care, safety, health, belonging and connectedness.

Blue Thunderbird Family Care helps with the demands placed on families in caring for their children by offering a range of programs including the following:

Reunification Homes

Baby Blue Reunification Homes

In keeping with Blue Thunderbird Family Care's vision of a continuum of culturally based care for Indigenous children in the care of Manitoba's Child and Family Service Agencies, Blue Thunderbird provides two short-term reunification homes as alternative placements in the Province's emergency placement system.

The homes for this program are located in the City of Winnipeg and, are licensed and operated in accordance with provincial standards. Each home is staffed on a 24/7 basis with two staff, known as aunties and uncles, providing care at all times.

Edison Reunification Home

The Edison program is a supported short-term foster home with a focus on parent partnering and reunification for Indigenous families.
