Whether you come to chill with friends, have coffee, or to chat about anything you want with our staff, we’re here for healthy, helping conversations when you’re ready. We offer mental and physical health services for youth. This includes Indigenous cultural support and land-based teaching, Safe Space programming for 2SLGBTIA+ youth, harm reduction and safe use kits – plus a foosball table, condoms, snacks, free Wi-Fi, places to charge your phone, and so much more.

Gaa Gaa Gii Gamik “Raven’s House”

The Huddle Broadway Youth Advisory Committee in partnership with the Youth Ambassador Advisory Squad from the Manitoba Advocate for Children and Youth, and Take Pride Winnipeg spent more than 6 months collaborating together to create a mural that brings so much meaning to our cultural space and Indigenous cultural programming.  As a part of the Re-Right Project, the mural represents the United Nations Convention Rights of the Child Article 6: You have the right to not only live, but thrive!  Youth met with many Elders and Knowledge Keepers as they tried to express the importance of thriving and mental health through an Indigenous cultural lens.  Local artist, Jeannie Red Eagle, listened and connected with youth and together, to breathe life and spirit into this amazing painting.  After painting with Jeannie, our youth and other community members, this space is proudly and uniquely ours at Huddle Broadway.  Many Miigwetches to all who made this a reality.

Inspired by each wall of the mural and what each direction represents with mental health, two Indigenous youth musicians, created this song to help us reflect on how our mental health is tied to the land, ourselves, our physical health, and our spirit. 

After one year of service, Huddle Broadway was gifted the name Gaa Gaa Gii Gamik (“Raven’s House” in Anishinaabemowin ) by Grandfather, Vern Dano.  He shared that Ravens, like many youths who come to Huddle Broadway, are very resourceful and bring with them many gifts.  Raven’s also share those gifts with others.  Huddle Broadway was created with so many youth to make it a space they wanted to be and that other youth would feel comfortable, like home, welcoming.  Grandfather Vern also shared that Raven’s fly high in the sky which allows them to see more of the world around them.  Through that gift of great seeing at Huddle Broadway, all youth, their families, and caring adults in their lives are seen not just for how they present, but for all of who they are including their dreams, their goals, the gifts and strengths they already carry.  Youth come to Huddle Broadway and share those gifts and resources, their knowledge, teachings, and experiences with one another and together we all grow.
