A former Lutheran church in Kitchener will become the home for a new Indigenous drop-in centre.
Stephen Jackson, executive director of Anishnabeg Outreach, said the former St. Phillips Lutheran Church at 236 Woodhaven Rd., is an ideal location for the centre.
"This is such an incredible space," Jackson said. "When you think of Indigenous organizations or Indigenous community, they often get the worst of the worst. In this particular instance, I feel that we actually got the best of the best."
Mike Farwell from AM570 interviewed Executive Director Stephen Jackson regarding the Indigenous Centre. The centre is scheduled for opening in September 2018 in Kitchener.
