The otipemisiwak centre

The Otipemisiwak Centre will be a culturally safe, and trauma informed, housing and childcare facility for Métis families residing in Kamloops and surrounding areas. The multi-unit apartment complex will include family housing (32-50 units), office space for LMO and Two Rivers, and a childcare space. 
The goal of this housing project is to reduce the need for intrusive child welfare interventions as well as increase access to culturally safe, trauma informed and family supportive childcare services in Kamloops.
