Labrador Friendship Centre Update

The Labrador Friendship Centre in Happy Valley Goose Bay is busy this year.

We spoke to Stanley Oliver who is the Executive Director for the centre.

Oliver says they have two programs started so far.

One is for single parents- the Employment Transition Program- and will give them seven weeks of classroom training on how to learn job skills, so they can become more employable.

The other is the Seniors Shoveling Project. Seniors 50 and over that need their roofs shoveled can call the friendship centre.

He says three people have been hired to do the shoveling.

Oliver adds that that the friendship centre’s other activities are running smoothly.
