COVID-19 Update Fall 2020 - Beendigen Operations & Services
Posted on September 29, 2020
Beendigen is continuing to operate by providing shelter to high-risk individuals who are leaving violent and unsafe situations. We are also offering telephone counselling and virtual counselling via Zoom. Our women’s shelter is currently open with protocols in place to protect all individuals who are staying or working there. We have taken necessary precautions to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus by restricting access to the shelter of all non-essential workers, visitors and contractors, practicing social distancing and proper hygiene, and have increased cleaning and disinfection processes in the shelter.
Zoom programming takes place every week. Groups currently running include Prenatal, Postnatal, Living in Balance (Addictions Program), Breaking Free From Violence – Cultural Programming, Community Action Program for Children, Drumming Group, Sacred Circle, and Women Living Free From Violence. Please check out our Facebook page or our website calendar for dates and times. Call Maya to register for any of these groups at 632-7899 or if you have any questions.
