MAWS is the holder of a CAPC (Community Action Program for Children) grant provided by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) that helps to fund the children’s programs in the provincial shelters. This funding contributes to a children’s worker salary, as well as a small amount is provided for training and materials. Children’s programs in shelters are critically underfunded. Teaching and modeling positive behaviour in children at the very earliest stages of growth can influence their choice to be violence free as they mature, this is a crucial pathway to reducing interpersonal and family violence in future generations.
