Empowering Indigenous Families, Together

This innovative initiative is providing $1,250 monthly payments to up to 150 Indigenous pregnant individuals until their child's third birthday, delivering as much as $45,000 per family over the course of the 5-year program.

Addressing Systemic Inequities

Indigenous people in the Seattle region face disproportionately high rates of poverty, housing insecurity, infant mortality, and violence.

The Nest aims to disrupt these systemic disparities by promoting healing, health, and equity for the communities Hummingbird IFS serves.

Reclaiming Abundance for Indigenous Families

Guaranteed income has been shown to decrease perinatal mood disorders, increase self-efficacy, and improve birth outcomes.

But beyond the tangible benefits, The Nest demonstrates an inherent trust, and value in Indigenous communities whose humanity is often devalued by mainstream society.

Secure, and Convenient Technology

AidKit serves as the technology partner for The Nest, providing a mobile-friendly application, convenient document upload, and a range of payment options. AidKit's platform balances ease of use with robust security, ensuring the program runs smoothly, and participants' personal information is protected.

"As an organization dedicated to serving Indigenous communities, we're thrilled to partner with AidKit to deliver this transformative program. Their technology has been instrumental in making The Nest a success."

Founding Executive Director, Hummingbird IFS
