ABOUT

The Blackfoot Family Lodge Society plays a critical role in helping Indigenous women who need help adjusting to an urban setting. Established in 1993, the Blackfoot Family Lodge Society was born out of an identified need for transition accommodation for Indigenous women and has since been embodied as an umbrella organization for a tetrad of programs and services.
