There is a real, unmet demand for safe affordable housing for women trying to leave an abusive relationship.
Each year an average of 30 women (and their children)approach Liberty Lane but 50%can’t be accommodated because Liberty Lane’s facility is full.
Women have also been declined admittance because Liberty Lane couldn’t accommodate their family size. Kenny House will have 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and Liberty Lane will have 3 new offsite units.
The overwhelming majority of Liberty Lane’s clients do not have the financial resources or support network necessary escape domestic abuse.
Liberty Lane accepts clients from across New Brunswick.
The $900,000.00 Capital Campaign target will ensure Liberty Lane does not have a mortgage and can focus on delivering services to women and children hoping to leave abusive and violent situations.
