History

The Blackfoot Family Lodge Society previously known as the "Native Womans Transition Home" was started back in 1993 by a group of concerned women that identified a gap in services for Aboriginal Women moving into the City of Lethbridge. After establishing a core group we gained the support of the City, local churches and the transitional home opened their doors in South Lethbridge in 1994. Soon after that we began the Headstart Program (the second headstart program established in Canada). Which was originally put in place to provide education to the children living in the Centre.
