From Safety Planning to Safety Assessment: Enhancing Risk Management in the Lives of Women and their Children
Juniper House, Yarmouth
This project will integrate the safety assessment and risk management approach used by The Redwood, which offers shelter and support services to women and children, to optimize service at Juniper House. This grant enables Juniper House to research and identify the supports needed by women in the rural Nova Scotia area. This process of integrating The Redwood’s approach will include consulting with The Redwood staff, training Juniper House staff on this approach, and working with the management and Board to develop policies that support this shift. Juniper House will share its work with the Transition House Association of Nova Scotia, to explore the use of this approach across the province.
Grant amount: $17,500
