Funding

Somebody Must Say These Things

26-04-2024 • 25 mins

To wrap up this season, we reflect on post-2020 mass shooting challenges linked to gender-based violence. Despite a recommended $25.6 million funding increase, transition houses still struggle with inadequate funding, affecting staff retention and service quality. While grassroots efforts provide some support, as well as some funding from the government, there is not as nearly enough to sustain the increasing demand for gender-based violence survivor assistance. In the face of the challenges, transition houses remain committed to their mission of ending gender-based violence.

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 Ginger MacPhee, Executive Director at Chrysalis House Association.


Produced by Podstarter.
