Transition House Funding

Harbour House in Bridgewater, is receiving a little more than 21 thousand dollars in provincial funding while Second Story Women's Centre, in Lunenburg will get almost 28 thousand., The province is providing 500 thousand dollars to transition houses and women's centres allowing the 18 facilities to continue providing quality services and programs to benefit women and their children. Community Services Minister Denise Peterson-Rafuse says the facilities provide an important lifeline to women and their children who experience violence and increasing the funding is the right decision to make. It is the first increase in 10 years.
