The “Apinonchisiwigamik” offers a short & long term placement for children in need of protection and shelter. It serves primarily the community of Poplar River and other SERDC communities. Placements are made through the Southeast Child & Family Services.

The group home provides a mixed educational program which blends the appropriate educational curriculum through the Poplar River school and a cultural component which includes traditional methods, skill and philosophy of living from the surrounding environment.

The facility is licensed and became fully operational in June 2001. Space is limited to 10 placements at a time.
