Premier supports stakeholder groups working on violence prevention
This summer, Premier Brian Gallant visited second-stage housing programs across the province including Crossroads for Women in Moncton, Maison Oasis in Kent, Residence of Hope at the Beauséjour Family Crisis Resource Centre, Liberty Lane Inc. in Fredericton, and Second Stage Safe Haven in Saint John as well as the Saint John Sexual Assault Response Team.
In 2015-16, through the Women’s Equality Branch, the provincial government provided $330,000 in program funding support for all five facilities. Another $50,000 has been allocated for the Greater Saint John Sexual Assault Response Team at St. Joseph’s Community Health Centre.
