Project Neecheewam Inc., is a private, non-profit organization which has been in operation since May of 1975. We are governed by a Board of Directors comprised of individuals from varying fields, and representing Native and non-Native communities and interests. The ongoing affairs of the program are coordinated by the Executive Director through Program Managers and Supervisors assigned to each treatment program. An additional complement of trained Youth Care Practitioners in each facility provides the primary counselling service.

Ensuring the development and recruitment of new staff, Neecheewam offers various training programs and practicum experiences to students in social work, education, and youth care. Each treatment program offered by Neecheewam is licensed by the Province of Manitoba. Standards and quality of service is assured through regular monitoring, fire and health inspections and program evaluations.Annual issuance of a license is contingent upon satisfactory performance in each of these responsibilities.

Where breakdown is so severe as to necessitate intervention beyond the family unit, it is our belief that the most beneficial treatment alternative provides “a substitute family” within a community context. Our treatment programs are unique to each individual and adaptable to dynamic family functioning. Our holistic approach encourages a sense of positive self-worth through emotional, physical, spiritual, intellectual and social growth. Project Neecheewam Inc. currently operates four residential facilities in Winnipeg for youth who have experienced severe family, personal and societal difficulties.These consist of: Anderson House (male), White Butterfly (female), Crisis Stabilization Unit (male), and Golden Eagle (coed).
