    Eco Systems of Care

    We utilize an Eco System of Care, a just and unconditional approach to direct services and systems change that focusses on three distinct levels the person, community, and regional level.   At the person level we provide culturally founded care to our MMIWG2S and victims of sexual violence that is both healing and preventative. The community and regional levels are focused on systems change through de-colonizing policy and institutions, building collective power through awareness and education, and creating collaboratives of support for our MMIW families and victims of sexual violence.
