Founding Date: September 18, 1997
Since The Red Road Healing Society opened in September, 1997, we have gone from working with a handful of people to providing up to 4000 services for people a month. We primarily deal with First Nations, Metis and Inuit people from all over Canada; however, we welcome all races and nations to participate in our programs and services.
We are an Accredited Early Intervention Program with Aboriginal Designation in Mentoring, Outreach, Community Day program and Crisis Intervention.
“The Red Road Healing Society has a firm belief in sharing with our participants the importance of our traditional roles and values (that build life); such as; love, courage, honesty, generosity, chastity, silence, and respect (without forcing a belief on anyone). These values traditionally were reflected in our families, communities and nations. It is our responsibility to give our people; particularly our youth; the direction, guidance, knowledge and wisdom; they will need, o sustain their lives; in a non-threatening, spiritual and culturally appropriate environment. The Red Road Healing Society believes that only then; the healing process can begin; whereupon at one point, it may have been neglected and abused; which may then require ‘in-depth’ therapy.”
