ACWS and five on-reserve women’s shelters (from the Alberta communities of Wabasca, Morley, Hobbema, Fort Chipewyan, and Enilda), form the current phase of Walking the Path Together. Each of us are passionately dedicated to meeting the needs of children living on-reserve exposed to domestic violence.
We acknowledge our past partners from the first project phase: the Centre for Children and Families in the Justice System and Dr. Jacquelyn Campbell, who helped shape the project and tools created.
Walking the Path Together is possible through funding by the Alberta Government Safe Communities Innovation Fund and the National Crime Prevention Centre with the Government of Canada.
