Recognizing Resilience and Understanding Need (RRUN)

QBOW Child and Family Services is working with the communities they serve, and a team of researchers from the Universities of Regina and Saskatchewan to improve family outcomes by developing knowledge through information gathering and knowledge sharing practices that honor the stories and experiences of the children, families and communities involved.

The RRUN (Recognizing Resilience and Understanding Need) research project will try to fill the gaps that exist in our collective understanding of what families living with childhood disability are going through and especially First Nations families living on-reserve. The project involves talking to families, professionals, and Elders in the diverse First Nations of Wahpeton Dakota Nation, Beardy’s & Okemasis Cree Nation, Piapot Cree Nation, Standing Buffalo Dakota Nation, and Wood Mountain Lakota Nation.
