On June 11th, 2014, Council was presented with our petition and voted unanimously to approve Councillor Paula Fletcher’s motion to help secure the long-term future of the family shelter.
This gave great hope. Executive Director, Bernnitta Hawkins (retired) said: “It says very clearly that our funder is supporting us, and that’s very important. This gives us a foundation underneath us when we go into negotiations.”
However, it was not clear if the shelter could be saved at its original location or would have to relocate, and if so where it would go.
