Alex Lusty Gets Approval at Committee of Adjustment for Ontario’s First Indigenous Healing Lodge
On July 25, 2019, Alex Lusty successfully represented the Thunder Woman Healing Lodge Society at a Committee of Adjustment Hearing in Scarborough. The Committee approved minor variances that will enable the development of Ontario’s first Healing Lodge for Indigenous women. The Healing Lodge will provide housing along with a variety of holistic and culturally-relevant programs to aid residents in their healing journey.
The Healing Lodge will contain 12 bedroom units for Indigenous women on bail, probation or parole and actively enrolled in programs. There are also 12 apartment units for women who have successfully completed their programs, but still want to work on refining their life skills, overcoming trauma, and regaining their cultural identity. A range of supportive uses are also provided by the Healing Lodge including, commercial space for entrepreneurial residents.
Davies Howe is proud to have been a part of Thunder Woman’s success and thanks Thunder Woman for sharing their exciting vision with us.
