The Maternal and Child Health Division is centered around advancing the health and wellness of women, girls and young children. Through healthy Wabanaki familial practices, literacy, and a focus on medical and spiritual capacity, this division promotes the bonding and love of the maternal and child spirits.
We aim to foster and improve healthy early childhood development with a focus on Wabanaki familial and cultural practices.
Through this program, we provide literacy care packages for Wabanaki youth, people in recovery, community members active in service, and students in college and vocational training to promote bonding and connections to literacy and learning.
This process is guided and supported by our communities. We will be identifying the most prominent gaps in care through data review and collection. We will seek to gain further understanding of the impact that unaddressed gaps can have on our communities through direct insight. The goal of our process is to shed light directly on the truths of our current systems and determine the path for healing those gaps. Our culture will be woven throughout our programming, bringing healing, and knowledge sharing to those we aspire to serve. We seek to build a vast supportive network that can grow with our future generations.
