At Sapa Dawn Center we empower Indigenous families, especially youth, by promoting education, health and social justice. We strive to acquire, develop and conserve resources to achieve social self-sufficiency for families. Additionally, our goal is to raise awareness od traditional values and culture with regard to families, youth and the environment.
