Lalum’utul’ Smun’eem exists to promote a healthy Cowichan Community and supports everyone having a voice. Our focus is on our precious gifts of children, families, elders and community while respecting tradition. We work towards achieving this vision from a place of growth, equality and strength.
We strive to support culturally appropriate ancillary services for children in care which are designed to address the well-being of children and families receiving services from Lalum’utul’ Smun’eem.
