Miskanawah (mis-con-a-wah) (meaning “Pathways” in Cree) offers evidence-informed, supported services to people in the Calgary area. Guided by Indigenous teachings, their vision is to have children, youth, and families thrive within a culturally responsive community. Their four central values include culture, community, respect, and trust. They came to Pace Creative for a custom web app development project.
Since 1988, Miskanawah has offered many youth and family programs to support vulnerable children and youth in a holistic way with the goal of harm-reduction and a strength-based focus on Indigenous teachings and traditions. This new custom web app development project was to be focused on youth suicide prevention: acting as an important resource to redirect individuals to the right resources, help lines, or social support.
