Project Title: Pujualussait Healing Initiatives

Project Description:
The project will promote healing in the Pangnirtung through the provision of one-on-one counselling and workshops which will help community members to address the impacts that Residential Schools had on their lives. It will provide training to project staff and community workers to increase their ability to provide healing services to the community; it will provide ongoing aftercare support to community members returning from treatment to ensure that they do not relapse and have support in place to ensure their ongoing safety. The project will provide programming for youth to help them break the cycles of violence and abuse which stems from the impacts of Residential Schools. The youth programming will also provide a safe environment for youth to interact and build healthy, positive relationships.
