Jainna Cabral, Program Coordinator

Hi There! My Name is Jainna Cabral and I am truly honoured to be your Program Coordinator here at Voices.

I was first connected to our Network in the 90s after I tried to lead a youth revolution in my group home. I know from firsthand experience how challenging it can be to feel heard and truly supported while living in care. I also clearly remember how much more challenging life gets when we are forced to transition out of care without support.

I was fortunate to have found great supports that mentored and molded me into a youth empowerment leader and connected me with educational opportunities that led to my personal and professional development. The best way I can truly express my gratitude to those who led me, pushed me, nudged me along the way in my journey is to do the same and pass on the tools that were passed on to me.I am really excited to engage with youth in and from care in Manitoba, and look forward to bringing the current issues to the tables of government, policy makers, and care givers to assist in making more positive changes in the system and enhancing the quality of care and post-care
services. Together we can do it better.
