Mountain Rose Women’s Shelter Association, Rocky Mountain House (Serving Clearwater County and Rocky Mountain House – West Central Alberta)

Safe Housing: A Rural Perspective supports women and children who have left situations of domestic violence through transitional housing. The program provides apartment housing for those who have stayed in the emergency shelter, but who face barriers to finding a longer-term place to stay. Along with housing, the program provides donated furniture and a food hamper to help the family as they begin to rebuild their lives. A Housing Support Coordinator helps to ensure that apartment residents have the skills they need to be successful in a rental unit, and to contribute to the community.

Grant amount: $20,000
