HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:

Learn how to use the Indigenous case management model developed by the Endaayaang Housing First for Youth Project (HF4Y) in Hamilton, ON to help adapt HF4Y for Indigenous youth.

The Endaayaang program — an exciting project and partnership between Making the Shift Youth Homelessness Demonstration Lab (MtS DEMS) and the Hamilton Regional Indian Centre (HRIC) — aims to empower Indigenous youth by finding home through rewriting their own stories and identities through reconnection to culture.

Endaayaang draws on Martin Brokenleg’s Circle of Courage framework as a culturally appropriate framing of the HF4Y program model Core Principles. The Seven Grandfather Teachings are incorporated to reflect the underlying principles of client-centred case management. In case management, the program considers the challenges and barriers that Indigenous youth experience – some of these include their family history; intergenerational, cultural and historical trauma; and their own individualized experiences.
