Indigenous-led non-profit organization launches in Lethbridge – Global News

A tipi is now set up in Park Place Mall to launch a new organization in southern Alberta.

Mark Brave Rock with the Sage Clan Patrol said the tipi is a symbol of home.

“This tipi is for hope and this is our home and so let’s create a better home — not that it is bad but it can be improved.”

The non-profit organization We Will Recover offers addiction support services to the community. Lori Vrebosch is the founding director of the Lethbridge-based and Indigenous-led organization and said it’s a much-needed service for the area.

Part of the launch is hosting its first big event, Napi’s Gift, a campaign focusing on bringing organizations together to offer education and awareness to the surrounding community.
