Purpose: The organization will offer a Tree of Life Program to youth and adult family members of missing or murdered Aboriginal women. The program focuses on individual and family healing and counselling through culturally-based holistic programming, and effectively blends traditional and modern healing concepts. The organization will provide workshops on violence prevention, personal safety and life-skills with the goals of reducing over-victimization and representation of Aboriginal people in the criminal justice system. These workshops will offer participants new insights and strategies to stay safe, avoid the predatory influences in the community and reduce the vulnerability of Aboriginal women and girls to violence and high risk behaviour.
