Touchstones of Hope - Tool Kit

The Touchstones of Hope movement encourages meaningful collaboration with others devoted to helping make sure Indigenous children and families are healthy and living with dignity and respect. This is why the Caring Society created resources that will enable communities and organizations to build momentum toward reconciliation in their own context by using the Touchstones of Hope principles: self-determination, culture and language, holistic approach, structural interventions, and non-discrimination.

In 2012, the Caring Society created a tool kit to assist organizations working with children, families and communities to develop vision plans to ensure the wellbeing of Indigenous children and families and that they have the same opportunities to succeed. In 2019, we updated the tool kit to be more user-friendly and it now also includes a "How-to Guide". If you would like the tool kit, please get in touch!
