Through the Backyard Initiative Assessment process, it became apparent that families in the BYI area are experiencing isolation and lack of resources to sustain health and well-being. There is a clear need to rebuild the web of relationships that will mend the fragmentation that families are experiencing. It is also necessary to restore the family bond with our youth to increase their sense of belonging and interconnectedness. Connecting them to elders and mentors in the community will provide guidance and direction. An Anchor Family acts as catalyst for increased interconnectedness, building community through community rituals, gatherings and relationship-building activities surrounding cultural customs, individual achievements and personal or family grief and loss. For more information about the Anchor Family CHAT, please call Khusaba at 612-721-5745.
