Our four programs focus on individuals with intellectual disabilities and/or Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, as well as people who are currently or were formerly in prison around Manitoba.
Our programs engage people who have a heart for caring for others, whether they are volunteers or employees, in walking alongside our clients on their life’s journey.
We encourage our staff and volunteers to live out their faith by working through the values of human dignity, peace, integrity and through a Restorative Justice lens.
