About Yvonne Rigsby-Jones:
Yvonne is Snuneymuxw First Nation, Coast Salish, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She is currently employed as the Addictions Specialist for the First Nations Health Authority bringing a background of working in Addictions and Trauma Healing.
Mid 2015 Yvonne retired from her position as Executive Director of Tsow-Tun Le Lum Treatment Centre. Over the years her work adapted and changed from addictions specific work, to pioneering and developing programs to address the complete person; sexual abuse and childhood trauma healing, residential school healing programs, elders healing and programs to assist grieving individuals. Working with clients from Corrections Services Canada was an integral element of doing a small part to assist in the over representation of Aboriginal people in the system.
Most significant to the healing programs was the Spiritual and Cultural foundation provided by many wise Elders whose teachings shaped the day to day life and success of the centre. These teachings became a way of life and are deeply embedded as Yvonne leads with compassion, because compassion works.
