Cedar House will offer temporary housing to Indigenous Women and 2SLBGTQQIA+ fleeing interpersonal violence and experiencing homelessness with the goal of reducing the risks associated with trauma. The mission of Cedar House is to provide a safe space for healing and recovery from trauma along with an array of support services, educational opportunities, and temporary housing. The vision of Cedar House is for Indigenous women to empower one another and to grow individually and together. Cedar house provides an Indigenized environment for residents to foster self understanding through personal, spiritual and cultural growth.
