Aboriginal Families Pulling Together
Our goal is to instill strength, identity, beliefs and values in the Aboriginal children & youth involved in our programs. Empowering them to be proud of their heritage, by helping them better understand their culture.
Aboriginal Families Pulling Together’s goal is to provide cultural “building blocks” for First Nations families; incorporating Indigenous crafts, arts, and creativity; and creating learning opportunities for caregivers to support cultural practice at home.
By providing accessibility to foster parents, it helps Aboriginal children & youth in foster care and their foster families, better understand the child’s Aboriginal roots.
As many Indigenous children in care come from different Indigenous Nations in North America, this program is sensitive and respectful to those differences and similarities. Furthermore, respect and sensitivity will always be given to the residing host nations of Shishalh and Squamish, as Indigenous Protocol requires.
