Nami Migizi Nangwiihgan
Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault & Stalking Services
(989) 775-4400 direct line
The purpose of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe of Michigan's Nami Migizi Nangwiihgan Services is to assist those affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking in finding another path without abuse. We are dedicated to providing resources, safety and advocacy to ensure the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional well-being of families victimized by violence. In order to achieve balance and independence, we as a community, need to reestablish a support network of services and resources.
For many people, finding the resources and services they need can be complex and confusing. Case Management services can assist you with finding the appropriate resources to meet your changing needs. During your session, you will meet with your Case Manager on a one-to-one basis to discuss what options you have. A service plan is developed to establish the goals you want to achieve. The plan is reviewed periodically to track progress and to address any obstacles you might come across.
Women's Support Group
The Women's Support Group meets every 2nd and 4th Monday from 6pm-8pm. A meal and child care is provided. The goal of the group is to provide a safe environment for women who have been affected by violence to support or be supported by other women who have also been affected. The group is focused on the effects of violence, but allows open discussion to empower and support those affected by physical, emotional, sexual, and verbal abuse.
