Our Story

 

The People of the Dawn Indigenous Friendship Center has been formally recognized as the second site of its kind on the island. This results from more than a year of planning, consultation and negotiations involving local leaders, volunteers and community members with the generous support of the St. John’s Friendship Center and the National Association of Friendship Centres.

Friendship Centers are non-profit and charity organizations that deliver culturally appropriate services to Indigenous people– regardless of status– in urban communities. Every Center is as unique as the area it serves allowing for programs and services that vary nationally based on need.

As the Center secures new funding sources, resources will be developed to assist individuals with challenges related to employment, health, education, justice and housing. Community cultural gatherings, ceremonies and teachings will remain integral to the Center’s offerings.

Based out of the former United Church and prior home to the Bay St. George Cultural Circle, the new Center also has a satellite office in the town of Stephenville.
