Our Mission Statement:
The Mission of the Aboriginal Front Door Society is to foster, encourage and support the Downtown Eastside (DTES) Aboriginal People to walk through life with love, honor, respect, and compassion for all things in creation, including themselves. To secure, develop and operate a safe place for Aboriginal People in the DTES, which place will be the entry point to begin the implementation of an Aboriginal specific drug and alcohol strategy in the DTES.
Be a place where Aboriginal People can experience, learn and participate in culture activities as part of their knowledge and growth through life's journey.
Be a place DTES Aboriginal People can call their own and feel at home. An informal, non-institutional place to come in for time out, help and activities.
Be an accessible storefront, which will have a ceremonial meet-ing area, a multi-use area and a food preparation area, if possible.
Provide leadership through the role models of respected Elders.
Be developed and operated by and with the DTES Aboriginal People themselves.
