The Safe House in Rigolet will be in operation, in a couple of more weeks.
We spoke to Charlotte Wolfrey, the Chair-person of the group: Rigolet Partnership Against Family Violence.
Wolfrey says they have hired a Manager. There are jobs advertised for people who might be interested to work there; so far they’ve had three applicants.
She says they are looking for casual workers as well.
She says there’s only one bedroom right now and they have to do more renovations this summer coming.
Funding came from the Tessiujatsuak Trust Fund to operate the safe house.
Wolfrey adds she is very happy that the safe house is will be open soon because they have been waiting for a long time for this to happen.
