Announcing the newest member of the ASC

HELP and our Aboriginal Steering Committee (ASC) are very excited to announce Laranna Androsoff as the newest member of the ASC.

Coming from the rural Southern Interior of BC, Laranna is an ambitious, resourceful and enthusiastic Métis professional who has always had a passion for research, advocacy and helping others.

Laranna has worked on and off-reserve with Aboriginal children, youth and families in a variety of settings throughout the years.  From working at an on-reserve Head Start program to providing outreach to young parents to Youth Probation and Corrections and eventually Aboriginal Family Support.

Currently, Laranna wears three hats at BFISS: Aboriginal Early Years Cultural Outreach; Parent Educator and Quality Assurance Assistant. Laranna is also an active member of the Boundary All Nations Aboriginal Council, the Boundary Métis Community Association and the Boundary Aboriginal Education Advisory Council, as well as an Executive board member of the SVCCS.

“It will be a privilege to assist HELP to work in partnership alongside BC First Nation and Metis communities to understand and address the needs of Aboriginal children,” notes Laranna.
