The National Association of Friendship Centre’s (NAFC) is excited to share two Public Service Announcements (PSA’s) created to promote the New Journeys Programs and Services database and resources that can be found on www.NewJourneys.ca
New Journeys is a unique online platform which allows collaborative stories about Indigenous experiences in Canada. New Journeys is also a one-stop resource featuring potentially life-saving information and services to help Indigenous women, youth and families. The focus of New Journeys is to provide Indigenous people across the country with the information and resources they need to lead a healthy life, with the underlying goal to end violence against women and girls.
The first New Journey’s PSA features a service provider explaining how the New Journey’s database and resources help them connect their clients to supports when seeking help or during a transition in their life.
The second New Journey’s PSA features the story of a young Indigenous woman who has made the choice to leave an unhealthy relationship and how the New Journeys programs and services database and transition tools on the website helped her and her children’s transition moving to a new city.
We hope that Friendship Centres, organizations and partners will use the New Journeys tools and website to support the work they do and find ways to expand our reach to help combat violence against Indigenous women in girls.
