Purpose: This 29-month project involves giving French-speaking women and girls living in situations of violence the means to empower themselves and access intervention and support tools and resources to help them leave such situations. The group, the participants and the many provincial partners will use new technology to develop a service delivery and support model for French-speaking Acadian women, which will then be adapted and transferred to suit different needs. In Phase 1, the project will target some 400 women in six regions who are experiencing domestic violence to collaborate in developing a tool for skills training, and creating a database and an up-to-date directory of services. Phase 2 of the pilot project will be designed to build capacity by implementing a rural support model called ParCelles, which is not only adapted to their needs, but is also inclusive and community-based. The project will be implemented in partnership with the Government of New Brunswick, transition houses and agencies that are working to improve women’s living conditions. Once completed, the web model can be adapted and transferred to other Canadian communities.
Comments: Multi-year project of 29 months.
