Affordable Housing for Women and Children Announced

The Governments of Canada and Newfoundland and Labrador invested in affordable housing and supported services for victims of domestic violence and their families in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

These four new two-bedroom units will provide stable housing and related services for woman and children who have experienced domestic violence.

The Federal and Provincial Governments contributed $600,000 to this initiative through the Investment in Affordable Housing Agreement while the project also received $330,500 through the Homeless Partnering Strategy.

Since 1985, Libra House has provided safe shelter and support for women and children in Happy Valley-Goose Bay who experience family violence. Services are available 24 hours, seven days a week, along with a 24-hour crisis phone line.
