Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and Child Nutrition

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum disorder is caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol. Those affected may require extra support and services.

The Awashishak Project provides services to clients and families impacted by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder through support group, group outings, community kitchen & garden, camps, crafts & traditional crafts, and family friendly activities and events.

The Awashishak Project also provides child nutrition services to families, through community garden, cooking with kids, and classes to learn to prepare healthy and economical snacks and meals for their family.


Children are our most treasured resource, learn to guide them. Join our weekly parenting circles and activities and learn to incorporate culture into your family life. Children follow what they see, learn to be a healthy role model for your children and live free from harmful substances.

If you are interested in the activities or would like more information please contact:
