In 2012, Ashley Quinn and Dr. Michael Saini from the University of Toronto's Factor-Inwentash School of Social Work published an evaluation on the Touchstones of Hope in Northern British Columbia.  

"The participatory action research indicates that the Touchstones community sessions are a collaborative, effective and engaging way to bring people together to create a better future for Aboriginal children and their families"  (Quinn & Saini, 2012)
