Other things may change, but we start and end with family

Breaking Free from Family Violence

 

This program supports Indigenous women across the province in a culturally rooted, holistic way, so that they are better able to navigate through the complex systems encountered when experiencing involvement with child welfare. The Program supports Indigenous women to create, build upon, and share their “bundles” and provides safe spaces, tailored to the individual woman and their family.
