COVID-19 UPDATE - August 9, 2021:

Gitxsan Child & Family Services Society has implemented safety measures to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.  Our highest priority is the continuation of essential services with safety protocols in place to protect our children, families, communities and employees.

Effective March 16th 2020, we have closed all six offices to the general public and altered our programs, services and events to virtual platforms, rescheduled all non-essential meetings and provided our managers and frontline staff with laptops and cell phones to effectively work from the safety of their homes.

Our board, managers and staff remain committed to working with our children, youth, families, caregivers and our member communities to fulfill our mandate of keeping children, families and communities together in a safe, supportive and culturally empowered environment.

As an essential service provider, we recognize that as the province opens up, we have a shared responsibility in maintaining the health, well-being, safety and security of our Gitxsan people.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or e-mail Cheryl Williams - Executive Director at (250) 842-2258 ext. 210 or toll free at 1-877-513-5858 ext. 210 or by e-mail at cheryl@gcfss.com
