Operated from a spacious house on a residential street in Surrey, A’mut (which means ‘home’ in Coast Salish) is a four-bed residential program designed with the needs and interests of Aboriginal girls in mind. Offered as an alternative to incarceration, A’mut is staffed by a caring team of gender-responsive, trauma-informed professionals that includes a clinical counselor, an art therapist and a First Nations elder. Girls are supported by 24/7 awake staff.
A’mut is a place where every girl is supported as the unique person she is. Our 20-week program promotes healing, resilience and a strong female identity to help girls address issues and become ready for a positive future in their community.
