The Safe House in Rigolet is not in operation yet, but organizers are hoping to have it open by Christmas.
We spoke to Charlotte Wolfrey, the Chair Person of the Rigolet Partnership against Family Violence.
Wolfrey says they are currently in the process of getting some renovations done before they can move in.
According to Wolfrey, they received some grants from Women’s Policy and Tessiujatsoak Trust Fund to operate the shelter.
She adds the shelter was looking for a Manager, and this position has now been filled until March 31st, 2010.
