Fort William First Nation Social Services delivers temporary financial support to individuals residing in the community of Fort William First Nation and Chippewa Trailer Park. Any community member that is in need of financial assistance can make an appointment with a case worker in the Social Assistance department and the Case Worker will assist him/her with the intake process.
The Employment part of Ontario Works will assist Ontario Works clients through the possible barriers to employment. We presently assist Ontario Works recipients with employment startup costs which may include items such as safety boots, hard hats, etc.
A Special Services worker will come into a client’s home to assess eligibility for home-making services. The home making services will be discussed with the client and a home support worker will be assigned to the client’s home based on the medical and financial eligibility of the individual.
