They do this by organizing and carrying out activities, linking with elders, healers, and cultural resources, and advising management and coworkers on policy and process issues.

SUPPORTIVE HOUSING PROGRAM

Waasegiizhig Nanaandawe’iyewigamig continues to grow and expand it’s programs and services to promote mino-bimaadiziwin!! As we know, there are many difficulties that those who are underhoused face in their day to day lives. A Supportive Housing Program will not only enable a safe space for Indigenous housing and community purposes, but it is also in line with our mission to foster health and wellness. Having a place to call home is important in eliminating the social determinants of health which can provide lasing wholistic benefits to the community and to the clients utilizing the service. 

This program will use a cultural approach to help people attain housing. With an Indigenous approach, cultural assessments, and medicine wheel teachings, we hope to guide and help those in our program through their healing journey by providing safe housing. The program will also provide referrals to partner organizations. The Supportive Housing Program will operate in a 24/7 format with shift work included in many of the new positions.
