The Manitoba Youth Hub Initiative was created by the Government of Manitoba, alongside Shared Health and philanthropic partners (Bell-Graham Boeckh Foundation Partnership, RBC Foundation, United Way Winnipeg, The Winnipeg Foundation, the Moffat Family Fund and the Réseau Compassion Network) The Manitoba Youth Hub Initiative’s goal is to provide a “one-stop shop” model of accessing services. Its intent is to bring together mental health, addictions services, primary care, peer support, and other social services into one space. All of this came together to provide Huddle, the Manitoba Youth Hub Initaitive.
Ka Ni Kanichihk Huddle (Formerly Ka Ni Kanichihk Youth Hub) is a program geared towards youth aged 12 to 29 years old. Our partners are the Manitoba Harm Reduction Network and Klinic Community Health. We are always looking to connect with other services to provide the best care to everyone who walks in our doors. We are striving to create a space where folks can access services such as peer support, advocacy, ceremonies, cultural healing, harm reduction, primary health care, mental health care, and drop in times. All guided and based in the traditions and ways of doing. All of our services are free of judgement and cost.
