Aboriginal Healing Foundation Annual Report, 2001.
Aboriginal Healing Foundation, Ottawa (Ontario).
The Aboriginal Healing Foundation (AHF) is a nonprofit organization established in 1998 with funding from the Canadian Government. Its mission is to support Aboriginal people in building sustainable healing processes that address the legacy of physical and sexual abuse in the residential school system, including intergenerational impacts. AHF provides funds for healing projects and promotes knowledge about the issues and the need for healing. To be funded, projects must show how they address the healing needs of Aboriginal people affected by physical and sexual abuse in residential schools; have support from other community services; show accountability to survivors of the residential school system, the community, and the target group; and be consistent with Canada's charter of rights and freedoms. As of May 2001, 463 projects had been approved, 161 had been conditionally approved, and over 300 were being processed. In fiscal year 2001-2002, 17 research studies will be completed. Research is planned in such areas as intergenerational impacts of residential schools, impacts of residential schools on Inuit and Metis peoples, sexual offenses and anger management, Aboriginal domestic violence, Aboriginal foster care and adoption, and best healing practices drawn from AHF-funded projects. Functions, objectives, and strategies are described for the board of directors, executive director, and the communications, finance, programs, and research departments. Board members are listed, and financial statements, a project funding map, and a schedule of project commitments and expenditures are presented. (TD)
