Walking the Path Together

Eagle Feather Workers based in five on-reserve women's shelters in Alberta provided one-on-one support to First Nations children who have lived with violence. 

By working with the child’s family, school and community supports, and emphasizing cultural teachings, the Eagle Feather Workers aspired to:

  • make the environment of the child safe;
  • help the family heal; and
  • make room for the possibility of a violence-free future for that child. 

Children should be allowed to be children: they need to laugh, love and play. This inspires Walking the Path Together. 

Phases I and II of this project have demonstrated outcomes and ACWS is searching for sustainable funding.
