Past Red Wind Tribal Technical Assistance activities for OVW Grants to Tribal Governments grantees

“There’s a recognition that power comes from within. It comes from having knowledge and vision. The sun has power. The wind has power. We have the power to bring forth and nurture new life. That’s the power Mother Earth has. There’s the power of love.” (Washinawatok, 1995)
Shelter and Transitional Housing is an important response to safety and provides options for women who are seeking safety following domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or dating violence. No one size fits any community. There are some basic ideas about the intent of shelter and transitional housing responses, yet our indigenous identity will go a long way to shaping what a shelter or transitional housing program looks like in the community.

Creating Sister Space is a new resource available for download that will assist Tribal and Native specific programs in the development of their shelter and transitional housing program.
