Celebrating International Women’s Day
Do you know a woman that has overcome some form of adversity? Show her by nominating her for an International Women’s Day Award!
It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the conception of the new Second Stage Housing Program!
Serving women and children transitioning from emergency shelter or temporary accommodations to permanent housing, the second stage housing program will offer fully furnished, safe and affordable housing for a period of up to 1 year during which time the women can regroup and rebuild their lives free from worry of further violence. Our program will provide referrals, social supports and advocacy as required and based on individual needs.
This project is a joint initiative between the Tri-Agency VAW group including Timmins & Area Women in Crisis, Centre Passerelle pour femmes, H.E.R. Place, Villa RenouvEllement and Tranquility House along with Cochrane District Social Services Administration Board. We are hopeful that units will be available for vacancy as early as late spring 2014.
