The Sugar Cane Health Station is the central hub of the community which provides program delivery and an overall strategic direction of Indigenous-led health and wellness in the Williams Lake First Nation community, on and off reserve. The health station serves to lead community engagement programs that create health awareness and provides tools to WLFN community members as they seek to maintain a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Staff members at the Health Station advocate for all life stages in the community, including children, families, adults and elders. The overall goal is to develop and provide initiatives in collaboration with partner agencies and incorporate a culturally sensitive approach to health and wellness within the community.
The Sugar Cane Health Station provides a variety of services to promote community well-being, including:
- Monthly group sessions (Prenatal, Postnatal, Men, Women, Elders)
- Alcohol and drug counselling
