Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada funds five social programs: Income Assistance, National Child Benefit Reinvestment, Assisted Living, Family Violence Prevention, and First Nations Child and Family Services.

These services help First Nation communities meet basic and special needs; support employability and attachment to the workforce; and ensure that individuals and families are safe.

The Social Development Office is located in the Kitasoo Band Office.
