De dwa da dehs nye>s believes itself to be the place of “first choice and last hope for Indigenous peoples” living within the communities we serve. For over 20 years, DAHC have been successfully providing culturally safe programs and services that are relationship based, welcoming and client directed. The De dwa da dehs nye>s Aboriginal Health Centre (DAHC), one of 10 (ten) Aboriginal Health Access Centres in Ontario, prides itself in living its name of “taking care of each other amongst ourselves”. DAHC is the only urban Indigenous organization in the City of Brantford and Greater Hamilton area providing a blend of western and Indigenous traditional medicine
DAHC provides Primary Care and Health Promotions programs in the urban centres of Brantford and Hamilton that are well-attended and currently have wait lists. We provide services to all age demographics. Building over the last few years we have had a steadily growing presence in the Niagara Region through the areas of Mental Health, Traditional Healing and Health Promotions. It is apparent that Indigenous Primary Health Care is severely required in the Niagara Region. Most recently, we have started to provide services into Haldimand County.
