The Ndinawe Safe Home is a 16 bed facility that provides accessible 24 hour shelter and basic necessities for Winnipeg children and youth who are living on the streets and are at risk of abuse and exploitation. This includes youth who have had previous conflict with the law. Unlike most group homes, youth can admit themselves into Ndinawe safe home without the referral of child and family service workers. The staff of Ndinawe offer culturally appropriate counseling and recreational services which help our youth develop a positive and safe lifestyle in a welcoming, supportive and safe home. In an average year this amounts to 5,500 nights of food, shelter and support to children in our community.
