Minwaashin Lodge - Indigenous Women's Support Center has been honoring and celebrating Indigenous women for 25 years. We are located in Ottawa / Algonquin Territory.
Our programs include employment, culture, counselling, and children and family. We also have a 24 bed shelter for Indigenous women fleeing violence, Oshki Kizis. Our shelter also hosts programs such as Housing First, STORM (Street Team Outreach Mobile), outreach, and anti-human trafficking work.
We envision a world where all of creation, the earth, the air, the waters, animals and people are safe, honoured and respected; where children and elders are valued; where culture and diversity are celebrated." The mission of Minwaashin Lodge is to provide prevention and intervention services and programs for grandmothers, women, children and youth who are survivors of family violence and the residential school system, including those impacted by intergenerational effects. A full range of violence prevention and intervention programs and services is provided in the context of reclaiming the wisdom of First Nations, Métis and Inuit cultural teachings.
