The Lac La Ronge Agency has chosen to base its Enhanced Prevention Program on the Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) which is based out of Australia.  The Triple P parenting program is an evidence-based prevention/early intervention approach to parenting.  There are five intervention levels of increasing intensity and the program is based on social learning models of parent-child interaction.  All staff with the agency has been trained in Primary Triple P Parenting and the Enhanced Prevention Staff have additional Triple P Parenting training specifically in dealing with the teen population and teen parents.  Since the implementation of the Triple P Parenting Program there has been a significant reduction in the number of children in care with the Agency. Pre-Enhanced Prevention Focused Approach (EPFA), there were 89 children in care, and in 2011/2012, this decreased to 62.  The reduction in children in care has resulted in an increase of the number of families and children receiving EPFA services. Pre-Enhanced Prevention Focused Approach (EPFA), 16 families were receiving prevention services, increased to 82 families receiving EPFA services.

In June 2010, the Lac La Ronge Indian Child and Family Services agency received a three year accreditation judgment from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).  Lac La Ronge CFS Agency is the first and only FNCFS agency in Canada to have accreditation status.  This three year accreditation is the highest possible judgment from CARF and requires on-going quality improvement and adherence to standards in order to maintain accreditation.  The Agency had to meet 1,800 accreditation standards to obtain accreditation and this resulted in a complete review and changes to every internal policy and procedure.  As this was the first FNCFS agency to obtain accreditation, CARF has worked with the Agency to adapt the accreditation process with a greater focus on First Nations organizations.  Lac La Ronge FNCFS agency and CARF have partnered in doing a number of presentations throughout Canada and the USA on the benefits of accreditation.
