Emergency Shelter for Men and their children is accessible through the Men's Resource Centre for men who are fleeing intimate partner domestic violence and other abuse(s) in their lives within their home. Men experiencing violence or abuse within an intimate partner or family violence are eligible for shelter. This is a temporary emergency shelter.
Our goal is to enable abused men to access emergency accomodation to ensure their physical safety. Crisis counselling is offered along with assistance in working with other service agencies to secure further transitional housing, future safe housing, legal matters, custody issues, etc. The Men's Resource Centre's mandate is all of Manitoba. All our services are free.
Here's a recent article posted in the Winnipeg Free Press about the program.
The Men's Resource Centre in November 2013 during Domestic Violence Prevention Month shared with CTV's Morning Show the Emergency Shelter Program. http://winnipeg.ctvnews.ca/search-results/ctv-winnipeg-search-7.125?page=0@sortOrder=date&q=steve+sutherland&fdate=&ftype=VideoClip&fpage=
