Ranch Ehrlo’s family programs are gaining more interest across North America and people want to find out more about how the programs help keep families together.

Patti Petrucka, director of family treatment for Ranch Ehrlo, has been invited to speak at the Nogdawindamin Family and Community Services Family Treatment Conference at the North Shore Tribal Council in northern Ontario in May.

Community leadership, the Elders Council, management, and frontline staff from across the region will be in attendance.

Patti explained, “Ranch Ehrlo’s outcomes are favourable, we are unique in the services we offer to families, and we have a service that meets most needs. We have been delivering high-quality, family-focused services for almost 20 years, so we have a depth of experience and proven results to demonstrate the effectiveness of the services we offer.”

The conference organizers want Patti to explain the Family Treatment Program (FTP), treatment outcomes, program development, cultural components, referral processes, operational costs, and any other details about the program.

“The purpose of my presentation is to assist other communities to conceptualize a family treatment model that could work for them,” concluded Patti.

Ranch Ehrlo’s clinical staff is respected across the country, and they have been invited to speak and collaborate with organizations across Canada.
