Laichwiltach Family Life Society (LFLS)

Located in the heart of Campbell River on Vancouver Island, the Laichwiltach Family Life Society is a multi-service organization that services Aboriginal people throughout the region.  The Society has worked in a caring, collaborative, culturally based way to create a safe environment and circles of care, healing and wellness for First Nations and Metis families over the last 20 years.  The society provides direct service to over a 1000 people a year, not including the various celebrations like Aboriginal Day and/or family dinners.

The creation of Laichwiltach Family Life Society (LFLS) began in 1991, when four First Nations women in the Campbell River area on Vancouver Island broke the silence that had long surrounded domestic violence. Audrey Wilson of  We Wai Kai First Nation, Pauline Janyst of Da’naxd’xw First Nation, Barb Mitchell of K’omoks First Nation,  and Lorna Quatell of Wei Wai Kum First Nation wanted to provide a safe place where urban and on-reserve women with young children who were experiencing domestic violence could get help and support.
