Spring has come and gone!
Over the last few months the Aboriginal Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) Society engaged in a blend of events with the First Nations, Inuit and Métis (FNIM) Street Family. While the Outreach Team brought back monthly Building Community events, the Projects team organized the first Peer Support Training Pilot Program attended by 10 Family Members – many who have transitioned into staff roles with the Outreach, Administration and Housing Support departments. Additionally, the Research Team led a dialogue with a cross-section of Victoria’s governing and service class on stigma as experienced by the FNIM Street Family. It has been very encouraging to see our community grow and strengthen with each passing season.
Blessings to you all as we celebrate National Indigenous History and Pride month!
