The Arctic Indigenous Wellness Foundation in Yellowknife is taking a unique approach to helping the homeless or people with addictions.

Starting this week, volunteers with the program will be providing transportation to a camp and will serve up a hot meal to kick off the day.

“A lot of the people that are on the streets today are stuck in a place where they feel they can’t fix what happened to them,” says William Greenland who, not so long ago, lived on the streets.
