Fort McMurray Family Crisis Society to build new facility

A women's shelter, strapped for space will now have room to help 85 more families .

The Fort McMurray Family Crisis Society which offers emergency housing, support groups and counselling for victims of domestic abuse, held its Annual General Meeting last night.

Executive Director, Mary-Ellen Proctor says $11.7 million in provincial funding will see the construction of a long term shelter begin in April.

"We have 300 families that are out in the community that we do follow up with who don't have safe housing, out of that 300 we do a risk assessment, when that facility is built, highest risk families will be moving into that facility," said Proctor

The organization saw an increase in demand in all programs this year with their offenders program for both men and women doubling in size.
