Hello, my name is Paul Keller, Yale First Nation’s Band Social Worker. I have lived in Hope, BC for 25 years, raising 3 children in our beautiful community. My family’s choice in choosing Hope as a place of “home” was based on the amazing mountains, rivers and trails that surround Hope. In addition, I grew up in a small Alberta town always appreciating and wanting my children to experience the same. I love the outdoors enjoying tour-cycling, hiking, snowshoeing, working around the yard and being on the water.
As Yale First Nation’s Community Social Worker, my duties include a broad range of Social Work responsibilities supporting children, youth, adults, families and the community at large. In addition, I manage the Income Assistance/Disability Program. If you are in need, I encourage you come in and explore options of support. I can guide you in areas of social, personal relationships, mental health, addiction, financial, employment, disability, parenting, spiritual and/or cultural needs. Your information will be kept confidential. Collaboratively and where needed, collectively we can create opportunities for positive change, making a meaningful difference.
