Provide furniture and renovations for the domestic violence shelter. Create a more comfortable and uplifting environment that will raise the spirits of Qimaavik residents and staff.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
All women and children residents of Qimaavik have experienced violence in their lives and need an uplifting atmosphere that will promote the process of healing. At present, Qimaavik is furnished primarily with old furniture that looks bad, does not serve to lift a person’s spirit, and is falling apart. This creates extra stress for residents and staff.
How will this project solve this problem?
Move out the old furniture and move in the new. Assemble new dressers for the bedrooms, chairs for the dining room and furnishings for the lounge. Set up shelves and organize supplies for the sewing room.
Potential Long Term Impact
Will enhance the overall atmosphere of the Qimaavik Transition House, providing a more healing environment for abused women and children. Will build the capacity of Inuit women to work effectively with and to mentor other Inuit women.
