Welkaqnik Next Step Shelter

“A place of good feeling”

Our Goal:

A next step shelter providing survivors of family violence a safe affordable shelter for a period of up to one (1) year.


All Mi’kmaq/Aboriginal individuals and families that are victims of family violence by referral and qualify through an application intervention process.

How We Help:

Volunteers and staff offer a warm, friendly place of good feeling in the company of other Aboriginal families.

Volunteers and staff provide safe and supportive guidance, enabling families to nurture and grow through Caring, Sharing, Helping and Understanding.

A full time Community Support Counsellor assists clients to gain a perspective on their situation and consider alternatives and options.

Community Support Counsellor implements a “stay goal plan” and provides appropriate referrals and establishes contact with other community agencies and resources.
