Learn more about what we offer
Our organization is founded on ancestral knowledge created by leaders and elders of our past. We acknowledge our connection with the spirit, faith, and spirituality. We recognize the impact of intergenerational trauma brought upon by systemic oppression, racism, and colonization. To heal, we incorporate our history, our spiritual self, our experience of trauma, and cultural practices, new and old, to create stronger people, stronger families, and stronger communities.
We value the harmony that exists within our body, mind, and spirit. Through the use of holistic healing we work to build our strengths, empower our visions, and spark motivation to achieve our outcomes. Our work is centered around culturally informed practice and is rooted in equity and inclusion.
We aspire to support individuals, families and communities to demonstrate their power through healing, empowerment, resilience, and opportunities.
