Our Philosophy

Community caregivers in Sioux Lookout partner and support each other to provide compassionate and culturally sensitive care that is responsive to individuals who have been sexually assaulted or who are in a violent relationship.

  • Individuals are believed and provided with unconditional, non judgmental support
  • The perpetrator is held responsible for the violent behavior.

Nothing is unimaginable, unbelievable or unspeakable.
