Our homes are the hearts of our families. Where family dinners and family connections often merge and fill our hearts with needed comfort… and where the laughter of our loved ones can be heard echoing through the halls.
Home is where many of us feel deeply connected to; where the land, water, love and family comfort us when things get rough in our lives or where we seek our rejuvenation and energy from.
For the last 15 years, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center was home to the #CSVANWteam. Many of our team played softball and volleyball on the IPCC staff teams and grew lifelong friendships. The singing, dances, Pueblo Harvest Café and meeting rooms were a part of the “home” for CSVANW and it has been a great feeling to have IPCC a part of our legacy.
Over the last year, the CSVANW team has more than doubled, requiring larger space and room to grow. At the end of October 2016, CSVANW was able to find a new home and transitioned to new offices.
As we begin to settle into our new offices, a little closer to the Sandia mountains, we are profoundly grateful for the new office space and space for our upcoming endeavors. Our team is growing and our new home is becoming the comfort we seek in this work.
We are reaching out to our Coalition family, friends and communities, to help us get settled in. We have set up a new Amazon Wishlist where you can donate anything from a box of Mr. Scent Markers (which we use daily) to conference chairs for our new meeting space to a refrigerator for our break room. Please consider supporting our work and our new home.
Also, we are looking for art decor donations for our walls. Call us!
Additionally, CSVANW will be installing a permanent handmade ceramic tile legacy wall in our new offices to commemorate and honor the resilience, strength and spirit of our Native women and children who have been affected by violence.
CSVANW is inviting families, communities, agencies and organizations to individualize a tile in honor of a Native woman or child affected by violence for the “Resilience That is Us” legacy wall and become a permanent part of CSVANW’s new home and its 20-year legacy.
CSVANW will only be selling 100 ceramic tiles, that are 6×6 in size, satin glazed and fired. To download the form, click here!
