The Braids of Life

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam

Braid One: LOVE (Mind)

Youth – Protection, Resiliency

We protect the nurturing growth of the dreams of our children and youth in care. To nurture dreams is to nurture their growth.

Braid Two: KINDNESS (Body)

Committee – Care

We care for them, their needs and issues. We are the platform between them and rest of the world. Love and faith = great support.

Braid Three: HONESTY (Spirit)

Elder – Wisdom, Strength

We take the teachings we consistently receive from our elders and apply it to our personal selves, as well as the work that we do.

Truth

All three braids encompass truth. We bring Truth to what we stand for which is to enforce the truth that change is needed and we are the identity of, and for those, involved in the system.
