Native Services Program
The John Howard Society of London and District is under contract with the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services and the Ministry of Children and Youth Services to provide culturally relevant probation and parole supervision. Workers complete pre-sentence reports for aboriginal youth and adults in the provincial system and pre-parole reports for adults.
The Native Services workers oversee completion of Community Service Orders for all native youth and adults residing on one of the three local reserves: Oneida Nation of the Thames, Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, and Muncey-Delaware First Nation. The Native Services workers incorporate traditional Native approaches in their work with clients.
