TRANSFORMATIONAL HOUSING

The Aboriginal Mother Centre Society Transformational Housing Program offers 16 newly renovated suites for mothers and up to three of their children under the age of nine, who are at risk of homelessness or child welfare intervention in Vancouver, BC

 

Transformational Housing has been running at full capacity ensuring that our Children remain with their Mothers in a Safe and secure environment.  Transformational Housing has been actively participating in monthly events at AMCS beginning in September 2017 when they kicked off their Annual Orange Shirt Day.  Transformational Housing has been focusing on our Mother’s giving back to our community, each Thursday we encourage our Mother’s to assist with the Elders Program by serving food, cleaning up tables, serving Food Bank Items to our Elders and engaging with our Elders.

 

This program has been very successful, we have seen our Mother’s build bonds with our Elder’s and we are instilling Cultural Values by having our Mother’s participate in Thursday events.  We have also begun our Christmas 2017 Donation request letter campaign, our goal was to reach 100 different Programs/Agencies/Businesses with requests, so far, we are about 25 short of our goal.  Transformational Housing would like to thank all volunteers, donators and participants.

Our licensed program focuses on Aboriginal culture, values, tradition, and language, however children of all backgrounds are welcome. Staffed by experienced and qualified Early Childhood Educators, we have a stimulating daily routine that incorporates play-based learning centers, age-appropriate activities to promote healthy development, circle time, and plenty of outdoor play in our brand new sunny playground.

FAMILY WELLNESS

The Family Wellness programs are put in place for the Residence of Transformational Housing to enhance their skills and abilities as parents, helping them on their life journeys.  Programs such as parenting workshops, housing and resources workshops, life skills workshops as well as self-care workshops are facilitated throughout the week. 

 

Our goal is to give the woman the skills and abilities needed when they transition out on their own. We try to implement our programs in a holistic way and encourage culture as much as we can. 

 

In the future we would like to further our programs for them to be open to community members, as well as be able to branch out and collaborate with other organizations. 

 

If there is other organizations that would like to be more involved or be able to collaborate and work together, or are able to offer any programs or resources that might be suitable for our residence or organization please don’t hesitate to call and make an appointment to further discuss possible collaboration.
