The Strong Voices Program is a culturally informed outreach and support program. Our goal is to build wellness through cultural knowledge, participation and identity while reducing risk and addressing immediate needs for Indigenous communities.
Strong Voices engages Indigenous communities along a path of wellness and healing through support services for people experiencing risk such as homelessness, substance use, mental health concerns, isolation, lack of access to support and care.
- Cultural connection
- Case management
- Crisis support
- Referrals to health, basic needs, employment, and other resources
- Free harm reduction supplies
- Self-identify as First Nations, Inuit, or Métis
Our program provides community-level outreach and case management (including access to Elders) for Indigenous people. In addition, this program meets clients in the community which assures easier access to our resources by removing transportation barriers. We increase outreach by participating in Indigenous community events around Calgary.
