The "Talking Bridge" project was initiatied in response to an identified gap in services in urban Aboriginal health care programs; specifically, it addressed single parent families who lacked emotional support in their everyday life in situations such as medical operations, childbirth, mental health, addictions, socialization, health awareness, cultural awareness, financial stresses, physical and sexual abuse, and peer support. The project targeted other areas in need of support other than single parents. They were elders, men, youth, and women with no children. This report describes the activites of the project since funding was provided by the Ontario government, demonstrating its' success, and to justify continued support for the project.
