Type: Contribution
Purpose: The organization will create two sustainable long term support groups for adults and youth in each of five Aboriginal friendship centres across Saskatchewan to provide direct services to families of missing and murdered Aboriginal women. The underlying principle of the support groups is the solidarity of families who have suffered the loss of a vital Aboriginal woman in their lives. The support groups will offer a space for families and individuals to come together to discuss the realities of losing a mother, daughter, sister or niece. Through the support groups, the organization will provide support and assistance, gateway services to other programs and provide education on the context of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and children. Topics will include victim supports, legal advice, sharing of stories and experiences, while at the same time taking into consideration Aboriginal culture and tradition.
