To help address the acute need, Na-Me-Res has developed permanent housing for the Indigenous community in Toronto for over ten years. Much more is needed, but we have done what we can by acquiring and converting locations in Parkdale and Cabbagetown.
These projects help address the need for more affordable and supportive rental housing for single Indigenous males of modest incomes, some with mobility issues. To ensure a successful transition, we offer dedicated support and counseling to tenants.
O’Gitchidaa Mushkiki Wigwam (OMW)
O’Gitchidaa Mushkiki Wigwam (OMW), which loosely translates in English as Warriors Medicine House, consists of two affordable housing units in Parkdale. Opened in September 2012, it is available to Na-Me-Res clients who are transitioning to permanent housing.
