The Ontario Native Women's Association (ONWA) has donated $13,000 to Living Space to support their shelter expansion. The 15 beds will be open to people in need in the coming weeks.
“A lot of our community members, when they want to have access to support services in Timmins, have to go all over the city in terms of walking. For me, I said, ‘You know what, we’re going to go to the community members. We’re going to come here and find those services and supports needed here,” said Virginia Sutherland, Timmins Branch Manager, ONWA.
ONWA will have priority access to five beds for community members in crisis due to human trafficking, domestic violence or other trauma situations.
