The Awo Taan Emergency Shelter

The heartbeat of Awo Taan Healing Lodge Society is our shelter facility, a place of refuge, healing, and hope for vulnerable women and their children in times of crisis. The shelter provides basic needs and housing for up to 32 people for a 3-week period.

In addition to meeting basic needs, Awo Taan works to help clients escape cycles of violence or abuse. Our counsellors provide support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to connect our clients to further support and guidance.

Awo Taan Healing Lodge Society practices a holistic approach to wellbeing, using traditional Aboriginal teachings of the Medicine Wheel to promote healing.
