Our programs are based on a balanced, holistic approach.  They are offered in-house or through our outreach program to Aboriginal women and children.

 

Community Support Project

(Sponsored by HRSDC) Under this new project the shelter offers addictions counselling and support to families with children. The Addictions Worker is responsible for providing addictions counselling, education, support and referrals as well as for promoting health lifestyles and healthy choices. The Family Care worker is responsible for working with families with children, conducting workshops, individual support and family based healing plans. These services are offered to in-house residents.
