Throughout the 2019 year, we reviewed how we were working as an agency and adapted our structures to further empower our clients towards their own levels of independency. In particular, our focus diverted our attention to strengthening resiliency and recognizing the ability of individuals to be more successful when given the right resources.
We expanded our court programs to include Strathmore and in early 2020 we included Lethbridge and Siksika into our court programs. We expanded our legal advocacy programs into Siksika and Eden Valley to further support Indigenous individuals with supports to address their legal matters. In collaboration with Treaty 7 Nations, and urban Indigenous partners we have worked towards advancing the needs of Indigenous peoples to address the overrepresentation in the justice system.
