New centre for aboriginal housing sits empty since inception
By SHARON BOASE

Newly refurbished transitional housing for aboriginal women fleeing domestic
violence has sat almost completely empty since it opened its doors last
January.
Despite a 2002 social planning report on homelessness forecasting a dire need
for such housing, only one mother and her children have stayed in the
facility to date and only for a couple of months.
Native Women's Centre executive director Linda Ense says if more aboriginal
women and their children don't soon come forward, they will consider opening
the doors to non-aboriginals.
"It's something I would have to take to my board of directors but I think
it's something that we have to consider," says Ense.
"We're here for helping, not putting up restrictions out there when there is
a need."
Native Women's Centre opened two transitional housing units in January, one
with three beds, the other with six. The $167,000 refurbishment of their old
shelter was funded by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.
