Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre Celebrates Phase 2 Grand Opening of 445 King Street

…with assistance provided through Homelessness Partnering Strategy and Community Places

WINNIPEG, MB – City of Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz, MP for Elmwood – Transcona, Lawrence Toet, and MLA Flor Marcelino joined community members on March 20th to help officially open the newly renovated Ma Mawi Chi Itata Centre facility located at 445 King Street in the former Manitoba Public Insurance building.

The renovations provided our organization with an additional 8828 square feet of drop-in/program space. The additional space will allow us to continue to provide much needed support services that promote longer–term stability to Aboriginal children, youth, individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in a culturally appropriate manner.

The City of Winnipeg provided financial support through the Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS) to Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre for the capital construction and program delivery. Community Places provided funding to assist with additional costs.

“This integral, cultural based housing program offered at Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre and funded by Homelessness Partnering Strategy provides Indigenous Homeless Youth the tools they need to find and maintain appropriate, safe housing”, said Erin Leonzio, Housing Specialist for Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre. “Being able to witness the relief displayed by youth upon securing housing, speaks volumes about the success of the program. This partnership has allowed us to offer supports that build capacity which in turn results in bigger and brighter futures for those we assist”.

Approximately 120 guests were in attendance for this milestone event. Thank you to all those who joined us to help celebrate this new beginning.
