NAFC Fundraiser

We raised over $6500!!! Thank you so much for your support and watch for our next fundraiser in April, focusing on women.

We are very excited to be hosting this fundraiser for the @nafc_anca that we have put together with @rivervalleyprintingco. We have beautiful prints, shirts, mugs, totes, jewelry and stickers curated by @kaija.heitland.tattoos @loganhowardtattooer @poppy_del @innerwolfjewelry to raise money for this important network that helps indigenous people across our country.

Special thanks to @get_bold for these rad shirts and @justdirectpromotions for the seeded paper for our handouts!

NAFC History

Volunteer driven and operated, Friendship Centres began in the mid-1950s as the number of Indigenous people moving into larger urban areas increased. Indigenous agencies emerged out of a clear need for specialized services to help Indigenous newcomers to the city. These agencies would provide referrals and offer counselling on matters of employment, housing, education, health and liaison with other community organizations.

As the demand for services by urban migrating First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people increased so did the number of Friendship Centres. The nature of programming and services was quickly enhanced. In the late sixties, Friendship Centres began to organize into Provincial/Territorial Associations (PTAs) and the notion of establishing a national body to represent the growing number of Friendship Centres gained popularity.
