The Four Winds Program is unique for three reasons:

It is an Indigenous-Only space in a non-indigenous organization;

It is specifically designed for the homeless and under-housed Indigenous communities in the neighbourhood, and the program integrates a trauma informed and harm reduction approach and enables access to Indigenous healing processes for community members who live with substance use issues by providing the opportunity to participate and reconnect to Traditional Teachings and participate in Elder lead Circles.
