How to Get Started

The Caring Society, with our partners, has created many resources and tools to support and foster growth for the Touchstones of Hope movement for reconciliation so that all First Nations, Métis, and Inuit children, youth, and their families are healthy and living with dignity and respect. Here are some resources designed to help you build and sustain your own Touchstones of Hope movement:

  • Training and facilitation - working with the Caring Society to help get you started in your movement. 
  • Touchstones of Hope Toolkit - resources (including a how-to guide) to help you get involved with your Touchstones of Hope movement. 
  • You might also want to have access to more of our training guides and resources too. They are all free and available to access here.
  • Lastly, here is our Touchstones of Hope Dialogue series that wrapped up in November 2021. The series looked at different aspects of child wellbeing and Indigenous child welfare in Canada and the USA. All the sessions are available on YouTube

The Caring Society has worked with organizations to adapt the Touchstones of Hope principles and process of reconciliation to suit their own needs in working with Indigenous communities, peoples and organizations. The UFCW, for example, created their own version of the Touchstones of Hope for reconciliation in the workplace.
