Fredericton Homeless Shelters

Organization

The Fredericton Homeless Shelters Inc. provides safe, stable, temporary refuge for individuals experiencing homelessness. We foster a caring and respectful environment that promotes dignity and self-determination.

Projects

 

  1. Students will prepare a plain language public legal education presentation on the rights and obligations someone who is fleeing their home because of IPV will face in New Brunswick. A lawyer will accompany the students to the presentation in the second semester to help answer questions. They will also do research in the first semester to understand the material and develop an accompanying information packet for staff of the Shelters. Elements to consider may be: tenancy rights, landlords, fleeing with/without animals (and subsequent retrieval from the home). The presentation could also take the form of a “Myth Busting” presentation.
