A local Indigenous women’s healing agency is expanding.
Debra Vermette is the Executive Director of Beendigen Anishinabe Women’s Crisis Home and Family Healing Agency and tells us they’ve opened a third location in Victoriaville Centre.
“So we now have 11 culturally based programs offered throughout our sites. This site is important because it is easy to access for the women and we will have walk in counselling, so they’ll be able to see someone immediately.”
The new facility will also be home to an alcohol and drug addiction program and a housing coordinator. (Photo supplied)
