Prince George, BC
Association Advocating for Women and Community
DESIGN / CONSTRUCTION
2016 – Ongoing
M’akola Development Services (MDS) is supporting the Association Advocating for Women and Community (AWAC) in determining the feasibility of new transition and health facility in downtown Prince George, BC.
AWAC was created in 1994 by a small group of community activists and social service providers in the City who identified a need for more accessible and appropriate services for street-involved women and female youth.
This project aims, through the construction of a new, larger facility, to broaden AWAC’s currently available services from a shelter to a transition units for women and women with infants, primary health services, and a safe consumption site. AWAC and MDS are working directly with BC Housing, the City of Prince George, and local and regional health providers to form partnerships and determine the feasibility for a project of this scale within the City.
