Empowering Manitoba’s First Nation communities, women, children, and men, while providing a safer tomorrow in the process! We understand family violence and the different types of abuse are difficult to stop, but we all have a role to play. It takes courage to talk to someone, get help, and speak out for those in need; our youth, parents, relatives and neighbors. Especially if we suspect any type of abuse or violence in the home. Our shelters aim to protect, heal, and serve women, children, and families in Manitoba, with some shelters also providing services for men.
