We embrace and are guided by cultural wisdom and traditional teachings to provide a healthy and safe place of belonging for all people living in Red Deer.

  • Offering referrals for suitable housing, food, clothing, pursuit of education, employment and skill development to improve quality of life for Indigenous people; and

  • Extending friendship and fostering positive relationships to bring awareness of Indigenous people and culture to all citizens of Red Deer
