For the entire month of November, Habitat Interlude will be raising awareness against domestic violence.
Habitat Interlude runs women’s shelters in Kapuskasing, Hearst and Cochrane.
Community Outreach Councillor with Habitat Interlude, Dawn Nuccio says there are a few ways they are raising awareness.
Nuccio says Habitat Interlude offers resources to women affected by physical, sexual, emotional, spiritual, financial abuse and harassment.
Nuccio says Habitat Interlude helps women outside of the shelter as well, including councilling and legal aid.
She says cases are handled delicately, confidentially and women going through the process of escaping an abusive or violent household are never alone.
