Decolonizing Programming

The Survivor’s Hope Crisis Centre consulted with the Heart Medicine Lodge, an Indigenous sexual assault recovery program, in order to revise their 40 hour SARAH volunteer training (SARAH –Sexual Assault Recovery and Healing). The new instruction helps volunteers be more sensitive to the needs of Indigenous victims receiving support, therefore, leading to healthier lives.

The cultural sensitivity goal is achieved, in part, by contracting Indigenous experts to lead a full day educational experience on reconciliation, diversity and oppression.
