Episode 20: Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata

The name Ma Mawi Wi Chi Ita­ta trans­lates from Ojib­way into the phrase we all work togeth­er to help one another”.

The Ma Mawi Wi Chi Ita­ta Cen­tre, Inc. (Ma Mawi) was born in the fall of 1984 by com­mit­ted com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers who sought an Indige­nous solu­tion to sup­port­ing and rebuild­ing fam­i­lies. Since that time, Ma Mawi has worked to sup­port fam­i­lies to bet­ter care for chil­dren by cre­at­ing mean­ing­ful oppor­tu­ni­ties for com­mu­ni­ty and fam­i­ly involve­ment. Ma Mawi believes that strength­en­ing fam­i­lies is a wor­thy invest­ment in the future.

Today Ma Mawi offers more than 50 pro­grams, 11 sites, and 200+ staff and volunteers.
