Dakota Ojibway Child & Family Services
DOCFS   is   a   non-profit,   community   based   organization   which   provides   child   protection   and   family services under the auspices of the Southern First Nation Network of Care. (Southern Authority)
Dakota   Ojibway   Child   and   Family   Services   (DOCFS)   was   mandated   on   July   1,   1981   to   deliver services   to   the   eight   DOTC   communities:   Birdtail   Sioux   First   Nation,   Canupawakpa   Dakota   Nation, Dakota   Plains   Wahpeton   First   Nation,   Long   Plain   First   Nation,   Roseau   River   Anishinaabe   First Nation, Sioux Valley Dakota Nation and Swan Lake First Nation.
On   April   28,   2004,   expansion   of   mandate   enabled DOCFS    to    deliver    services    to    the    membership    of those   eight   communities   wherever   they   lived   in   the Province     of     Manitoba.     There     are     now     fully functioning    offices    in    Brandon,    Portage    la    Prairie and Winnipeg.
On    September    1,    2007,    Sandy    Bay    Ojibway    First Nation   received   their   own   mandate   and   became   an independent   agency.  DOCFS   now   delivers   service to seven of the DOTC communities.
DOCFS   is   governed   by   a   Board   of   Directors   which   is comprised    of    representation    from    each    of    the seven DOTC communities.
