Walking The Path Together project

Walking The Path Together

Children are children, they are allowed to be children: they need to laugh, love and play. This is the basis of Walking the Path Together.

Using a wholistic approach, Eagle Feather Workers based in 5 participating women's shelters in Alberta provide one-on-one support to children who have witnessed violence. By working with the child's family, school and community supports, the Eagle Feather Workers aspire to make the environment of the child safe and help the family heal. The Eagle Feather Workers have experience working with children and are skilled and trained on the complexities surrounding domestic violence. Their interventions will evolve to best meet the needs of the child over the 2 1/2 year commitment.

By finding ways to build better child-family relationships, develop intervention strategies and help children with trauma - Walking the Path Together will help end the cycle of violence by sharing this knowledge with others.
