It takes 10,000 Little Steps to Healing
We are here for those who have been left behind without hope. Their healing and re-entry into wellness is not a straightforward journey. It takes years, with detours along the way.
Support for people in the system
STR8UP helps members, youth, and adults within the criminal justice system become healthy responsible citizens. We support through a range of services, from addictions support and healing circles to mentorship and justice advocacy.
Gangs are a dead-end street
No matter who you are, what you have done, or where you live, if you are ready for a new life, a new life is ready for you. We all have the power to change.
“It wasn’t easy to walk away – gang life was all I knew and a part of who I am – I dropped because they were too greedy, too power-driven and had no loyalty.”
Our impact is evident in each life transformed and those lives impact their families and communities. We are creating a positive ripple effect in the city of Saskatoon and throughout the province of Saskatchewan.
