To be a place Where Common Sense Comes Alive
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Ionia is a family-oriented, self-help community. Many of our residents are children and teens. Together, we have developed a non-profit which serves as an umbrella for our gathered activities and peer support. Ionia is located on 160 acres in Kasilof with ten log cabins, a community center, garden, barn and out buildings. Using peer support along with a whole foods diet we have reduced the acuity of our illnesses while sustaining ourselves and our families in a village of our own building. Ionia provides doable answers to the pressing questions of preventative health care, transportation, gainful employment, companionship, and housing. Our beneficiaries come from all over Alaska and our values/services are: Daily Talking Circles/Morning Meetings - One of the most obvious tools for behavioral health is also the least expensive, and has been the most effective for us - talking with each other regularly. This tool has evolved into daily community-wide talking circles from 7 to 9 AM. Personal and family subjects are aired. Ioniaís governance pivots on how we are connected and how we communicate with each other. Food for Health - Ionia is well known for our delicious healthy cooking. Ionia values balanced whole foods cooking and year-round participation with our daily food. We provide whole foods cooking education in the Longhouse community kitchen. Food for Health addresses the nutritional needs of all ages, pregnancy and babies, as well as the attitudinal barriers to changing destructive habits. We have found that this is essential for keeping many families out of crisis. Simple Seasonal Activities - We have discovered that mundane, direct activities based in the natural world have the most therapeutic value: cutting firewood for warmth, hand laundry for cleaning clothes, gardening, gathering wild berries or mushrooms, carpentry for a needed table, etc.
