Momentum for Indian Residential School Survivors Society
Project Goal: $1000
**Content Warning: The information in this blog and on the IRSSS website discusses residential schools and colonial violence.
The Indian Residential School Survivor Society (IRSSS) is a provincial organization that has been providing services to Indian Residential School Survivors for more than twenty years.
What is IRSSS doing to nourish their community?
The IRSSS strives to provide physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual growth, development, and healing through culturally-based values and guiding principles for Survivors, Families, and Communities.
The IRSSS delivers wellness and healing services to Indian Residential School Survivors and intergenerational Survivors throughout British Columbia. IRSSS provides essential services to Residential School Survivors, their families, and to those dealing with intergenerational traumas.
How can a micro-grant build momentum for IRSSS?
The $1000 micro-grant will be donated directly toward IRSSS, for them to continue to provide wellness and healing services. One of the organization's goals is to expand their support to partner organizations and maximize access to culturally sensitive, emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual care.
Services that the IRSSS currently offer include:
