Purpose: The primary objective of the ‘’Ojistoh House Multi Year Support Project – ‘‘12 Seasons to Independence’’ is to offer disadvantaged Aboriginal Women with children who are homeless or at risk of being homeless with multi-year supports that immediately address the root causes. Many Aboriginal women struggle to move toward independence due to multiple stresses in their lives. The project goal is to develop a ‘’web’’ model of supports, resources and networks to women by creating a unique culturally sensitive residential and outreach program within the community that will bring disadvantaged women from a place of economic, social and cultural deprivation to a place of confidence, strength and independence. Working in collaboration with other community and regional services, the in-house and community support team will work with women from the beginning of Phase I through to the completion of Phase III to ensure their economic, social and cultural independence and success.
