Welcome to Kihiw Iskewock (Eagle Women) Lodge
Kihiw Iskewock (Eagle Women) Lodge is a new innovative residential facility providing Transitional Housing for Aboriginal Women, working to support Aboriginal women to break the cycle of involvement with the law, and to provide them with the opportunities to reclaim their place, their strength, their children and their lives.
Addressing the urgent housing needs faced by women exiting or recently released from correctional institutions, Kihiw Iskewock offers a range of resident-centred healing programs to help reduce women’s risk for relapse, all the while supporting their reintegration into the community and their reunification with their children.
Overview of the Facility:
Kihiw Iskewock offers 15 self-contained rental units for Aboriginal women and their children, comprised of bachelor, one-bedroom, 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom and 4 bedroom units. The facility also contains amenity spaces including a teaching kitchen, children’s playroom, literacy room, multi-purpose space and office.
Women entering transitional housing have histories that are complex and traumatic. Arriving with limited life and social skills and suffering trauma, women participate in in-house programming, build their capacity to care for themselves, parent their children, further their education and / or become employed. Many women need to be reunited with their children who are in foster care. Here, mothers and children are supported in rebuilding their relationships and resolving family issues.
