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.
