We acknowledge that we live and work on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. We are situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to Six Nations, which includes six miles on each side of the Grand River.
As we work towards reconciliation, we are committed to forming alliances and solidarity with Indigenous communities, and land acknowledgements are just a first step in doing this work.
As a responsible community service organization, Luther Village on the Park is committed to deliver equitable and accessible services to our community.
We are committed to embedding anti-racist, anti-oppressive practices, and perspectives into the fabric of our organization. We recognize that we have a lot of work to do to begin the journey of dismantling racist and oppressive systems, and addressing biases, stereotypes, and prejudices as we continue our mission to become authentic allies. We have implemented antiracism training for staff, actively building safe spaces to host brave conversations for learning, and building a culture of belonging for all, but especially BIR (Black, Indigenous, Racialized), 2SLGBTQIA+, historically and presently marginalized individuals and communities.
We will continue to listen with the intention to learn, unlearn and undo the subconscious ways White Supremacist culture shapes our perspectives, and prioritize human dignity. We commit to no longer being silent or neutral as we move towards tangible action and change.
Our goal is to enrich the lives of our residents by building meaningful relationships, fostering growth opportunities, and encouraging personal choice in an inclusive environment.
As we live and work in a diverse community, our monthly activity calendars focus on all dimensions of wellness to create a sense of belonging. Residents are offered the opportunity to learn about and celebrate different holidays, cultures and traditions, and special days or months of significance.
