Tewegan House for Aboriginal Women

Tewegan Transition House is a 12-bed transitional home for young First Nation, Inuit and Metis women (between the ages of 16 and 29) that are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

Tewegan offers a safe, culture-based environment where women can feel safe to reclaim pride and respect in their culture. It offers confidential and supportive counselling, as well as information, advocacy and referrals that will assist the young women in obtaining permanent stable housing.
