The Mkaana-wii-giiwe’aad (Finding Their Way Home) Program uses a cultural approach to help people find housing. We believe that a strong sense of culture is important for healing and identity and our team helps to provide culturally-appropriate assessment tools guided by Indigenous knowledge holders and experts in the field of supportive housing and help others on their journey of finding a home.
With an Indigenous approach, cultural assessments, and medicine wheel teachings, we aim to guide and help members of our program through their journey to housing. By setting goals, advocating for others’ behalves and working together, our program is there to help. We also make referrals to local Indigenous agencies, provide access to traditional healing services and even house our own cultural program and events.
*Note: The Mkaana-wii-giiwe’aad Program is only available in Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, and Timmins.
