Episode 13: Ndinawe

Ndi­nawe­maa­ganag Endaawaad Inc. (Ndi­nawe) is a not-for-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cat­ed to help­ing at-risk youth in Winnipeg.

Since 1993, their inte­grat­ed ser­vices have been con­nect­ing vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren and youth aged 11 – 17 with the shel­ter, cul­ture, recre­ation, edu­ca­tion, out­reach and sup­port they need for safe and healthy lives.

Open every day of the year, Ndi­nawe is an imme­di­ate and reli­able place of safe­ty, con­nec­tion and sup­port for youth dur­ing times of high risk when oth­er resources are unavail­able to them.

All of their ini­tia­tives rec­og­nize that youth are most vul­ner­a­ble when they have no safe place to turn for help.

Their pro­grams tar­get harm reduc­tion, cri­sis inter­ven­tion, edu­ca­tion and sta­bi­liza­tion for young peo­ple at risk of, or expe­ri­enc­ing, home­less­ness, sex­u­al exploita­tion, fam­i­ly con­flict, place­ment break­down, and men­tal health crises.

We also work to build a sense of con­nec­tion and belong­ing for youth at risk, to strength­en the youth voice with­in the com­mu­ni­ty and reduce the social iso­la­tion they experience.

Their strong his­to­ry of pro­vid­ing inno­v­a­tive and cul­tur­al­ly informed pro­grams to under-served com­mu­ni­ties is part of a pos­i­tive path towards a bet­ter future for the city’s Indige­nous and at-risk youth.
