Somebody Must Say These Things

Chapter 7 - In 1978, the first transition house opened in Nova Scotia. In 1989, the Transition House Association of Nova Scotia was incorporated. While this organization has done so much for women and children in this province, the instability of funding means they are always in jeopardy. In this episode, we spoke with survivors of abuse, Brenda, Flo, and Ginger, who can remember a time before transition houses were widely accessible - and just what is at stake if we lose them.


This podcast was made possible by the Transition House Association of Nova Scotia. THANS exists to eliminate violence against women in Nova Scotia. Their organizations provide a full range of support services to women and their children in a safe, supportive environment and provide survivors of violence with opportunities to learn about available resources and alternatives to facilitate informed personal choices and decisions."


THANS is not 100% government funded by the provincial or federal government. This needs to change. Go to thans.ca to learn how you can help.


This podcast is narrated by Grace McNutt.
