Oshki Kizis Lodge is part of the Aboriginal Women's Support Centre - Minwaashin Lodge. We are a 19-bed shelter for First Nations, Inuit, and Metis women & children who are fleeing abuse. We recognize that Aboriginal women & children, families and communities have experienced abuse. We recognize that our people need culturally appropriate services to foster healing.
By empowering women, we assist them on their healing path to a safe & healthy place. We support the family unit holistically by showing awareness and respect for individual and cultural beliefs, spirituality and diversity.
Oshki Kizis offers many culturally appropriate services such as:
- Community support
- Transitional support
- Educational services
- Crisis intervention
- Child & youth advocacy
- 24-hour residential support
- Hospital visits
- Court accompaniment
- Traditional teachings
Our clients receive assistance in accessing housing, financial, legal and medical resources.
