Melissa Stone: Taking action to Make Homes for the Unsheltered Humans.

On today’s podcast we’re joined by Melissa Stone, coordinator for Astum Api Niikinaak, Winnipeg’s community of 22 tiny homes located behind Thunderbird House that opened late last year.

The low-barrier units provide unhoused individuals a safe and secure space where they have their own space and a community around them. There is no maximum time to stay - the goal is to provide the stability, programming and support to help unhoused individuals transition off the streets at their own pace. Listen to today’s episode to hear more about the journey to create Astum Api Niikinaak, and what it could mean for Winnipeg’s future.
