My name is Vince Kastrukoff and I am the Director of Service for Children's Services.
Child Welfare Workers are responsible for the provision of a broad range of child welfare services including intake, assessment, and clinical intervention with children and their families. They are required to conduct investigations, provide emergency services, make application to the court and ensure that the needs of the children living either in their own home, or in care, are met. Child Welfare Workers are assigned to a specific service stream, but may at times, be required to work in multiple or different service streams at any given time. The Children’s Services consists of several different assigned duties such as Children Services Worker (support for children in care), Resource Worker (support for foster care providers), Adoption Worker (support for families involved in adoptions and other form of custody), Staff Resource / Child Care Worker (supports within our Residential Treatment services) and Independent Living Worker (assist youth transitioning into adulthood).
