Purpose: This pilot project will help approximately 3,000 abused rural women to increase their safety and deal with problems caused by systemic barriers (poverty, low literacy and unemployment) and structural barriers (lack of services such as housing, daycare, health care and transportation). The project also addresses safety and security issues associated with the use and storage of firearms (suicide, accidents and homicides). The group will enhance the safety of rural Aboriginal, Anglophone and Francophone women in the Miramichi region. The lessons and bilingual tools that result from this project will be shared with all partners and interested groups working in other rural settings.
