Healing Families through Connective Settings and Approaches (2014)

This funding cycle focused on projects for families with dependent children, where one or more family members is impacted by mental illness, problematic substance use, and/or unhealed trauma.

Funds were awarded in 2014 to sixteen (16) projects that demonstrated the potential to improve the social and emotional wellbeing of family members, by developing connections in one of two funding streams – Stream 1: Culture and Spirituality, or Stream 2: Community and Neighbourhood.
