About Kw'umut Lelum 


Kw’umut Lelum is an Indigenous agency rooted in Coast Salish snuw'uy'ulh that provides culturally-driven family support, caregiving services and community programs and services to nine First Nations on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Our organization operates as nutsamaat shqwaluwun (people working together with one heart and one mind) guided by the teachings of our ancestors to promote emotional and physical health, parenting skills, cultural strength, and personal growth.

While respecting Coast Salish practices and traditions, Kw’umut Lelum offers services and programs that keep our children safe, strengthen and preserve our families, connect to our culture, and enhance our community wellbeing.

Our agency provides services to anyone with a cultural connection to our Member Nations, either living in community or in the urban areas of Duncan or Nanaimo.
