The Ni-Apin Program is one of the several programs offered by the Aboriginal Health & Wellness Centre of Winnipeg, Inc.
Ni-Apin is a Cree word which means “I am sitting” with the intended meaning of “I am sitting at home” provide both Housing First and programming and services for Urban Indigenous individuals who are either experiencing chronic or episodic homelessness or who are at risk of homelessness.
Our programs provide portable, individualized supports and services as a response to the participant’s distinctive needs. We utilize an Intensive Case Management (ICM), and Harm Reduction Approach aiming to connect participants to permanent housing while empowering them to achieve their self-identified goals.
Ni-Apin services provided are holistic and based on AHWC’s Medicine Wheel approach and represent our philosophy of intervention, prevention, treatment, aftercare and promotion. Services are private and confidential and are provided in a welcoming, non-judgmental environment.
