At the Denver Indian Family Resource Center (DIFRC), we are committed to strengthening vulnerable American Indian/Alaska Native Children and families through collaborative and culturally responsive services to support generations of healthy and strong American Indian/Alaska Native families. Many of our clients are survivors themselves, descendants and/or relatives of survivors of the boarding school era. As a service we want to support and provide a space for healing and recognition of the resilience of families in face of trans-generational trauma caused by the Indian boarding school experience. It is a special day for survivors to be reaffirmed that they matter and that Every Child Matters.
If you are interested, please RSVP to email@example.com by Monday, Aug. 26, to let us know if you can attend the meeting. If you are unable to attend, but would still like to be involved, please let us know how and we will keep you updated with information.
