Kimamow Atoskanow Foundation will continue to offer Indigenous Health Services inclusive of information, support, resources, and supplies to address a number of health issues being experienced by Indigenous Peoples in Alberta.
We have speakers and peer support available for on-line and in-person connections. In addition, our Mobile Prevention and Support Team will deliver health supplies and resources upon request. We share information about COVID-19, Mental Health, Addictions, Sexually Transmitted and Blood Borne Infections (STBBI) like HIV and Hepatitis C. Access to cultural and social supports is included.
If you need forms printed or help getting referrals to services, we are available. Appointments can be made by contacting 1-866-971-7233(SAFE) or email to firstname.lastname@example.org – our hours of operation are flexible. Our fixed sites include High Level, Peace River, and Grande Prairie.
Programs are available to all people with emphasis on First Nations, Metis, Inuit, and other self-identifying Indigenous Peoples. Our mobile services for STBBI are primarily in Treaty 6 and Treaty 8 areas – recognized as the North Zone. For COVID-19 and Substance Use, our activities include Treaty 6, 7, and 8 – throughout the Province of Alberta. While we do not currently have First Nation on-reserve specific funding, we are able to meet people where they are at recognizing access to health information and supplies should be available to everyone.
