Our Story... What We Do

Pain, addiction, and homelessness are rife in the Downtown East Side Community, yet there is also love, hope, and strength. Residents face daily challenges of basic survival and are in constant transition.

The Vision of Aboriginal Front Door Society is composed of Aboriginal people that are able to walk through life with love, honor, respect, and compassion for all things in creation, including themselves. We address addictions, dependencies, and other issues in a holistic manner using Aboriginal teachings.

Our Community

Aboriginal Front Door Society is a culturally safe, peer-designed non-judgemental place for Aboriginal Peoples their friends, and family in the Downtown East Side.

We create hope and offer support through Aboriginal cultural traditions, caring, and acceptance. We are a meeting place and a drop-in center with a welcoming environment, providing opportunities to learn more about Aboriginal Peoples and Culture.
When necessary, we can also offer other services, such as serving as a crisis center, brokering long-term and specialty trauma counseling, and doing court accompaniments.
