Purpose: This 7 month project will improve service delivery by the Transition House to women who are fleeing situations of domestic violence and provide increased employability and skills to 20 women. The project will implement a series of 5 training modules for 20 transition house workers from an isolated British Columbia area that experiences three times more domestic assault calls than surrounding communities. The participants will include elder women, Aboriginal women, and women with limited education who currently hold lower paid positions and/or are volunteers. The training will offer the participant’s skills and experience that will increase their employability, strengthen their potential for career advancement, and transfer their training to further professionalize and positively impact the direct services women and children receive when entering the transition homes.
