TWHLS is led by Indigenous women for Indigenous women. Our goal is to empower First Nations, Inuit and Metis to overcome inter-generational trauma and break free of conflicts with the law so that they may find balance and retake their honoured place in society. Compassionate, highly motivated and results-oriented individuals, with a passion to support restoration of identity are invited to apply for job opportunities as they arise. 

Due to the nature of our culturally based social services, TWHLS encourages applications from Indigenous women (Section 24 (1) (a), Special Employment, Ontario Human Rights Code). 

TWHLS is a grass-roots organization made possible by the the passion and energy of volunteers. In addition to employment opportunnities, we may be able to provide internships and work-integration placements to dedicated individuals.
