|Purpose: ||This 24-month project will respond to the specific needs of women, including Aboriginal and immigrant women, who have experienced abuse as they transition to violence-free lives. Innovative service delivery models and supports will be tested over the course of the project to ensure women using shelters benefit from new approaches and standards. The project will facilitate improvements in services for abused women and results will be shared with organizations working on similar issues across Canada.
The project will support women and their children as they leave the second-stage program to re-integrate into the community. The primary population is women and children who have experienced abuse in Edmonton and the surrounding areas.
