Community Committee to Find Home for Shelter

A community committee has been struck to determine a suitable location to construct the proposed West Central Safe Shelter in Kindersley. The project, an initiative of the West Central Crisis and Family Support Centre, was a major topic on the agenda of Council’s June 25 Regular Meeting as two dozen residents attended to voice their opinions about the facility being located on available Town land near Coleman Crescent and adjacent to Caleb Village Retirement Community.

The Town of Kindersley and Crisis Centre initially hosted a public information session on Tuesday, June 19 at Caleb Village to get preliminary public feedback about the project.  

Following an hour of discussion between the delegates and Council, during which Michelle Weber, Executive Director of the West Central Crisis and Family Support Centre, who was also in attendance shared further information about the process of working toward the facility and its need in the region, Council passed a resolution to establish a committee. Co-chaired by Mayor Rod Perkins and a member of the community still to be determined, and in conjunction with the Crisis Centre, the committee is directed to work expeditiously to determine a new and suitable location for the proposed shelter. Many members of the delegation added their names to the committee Monday night, and the first meeting is to take place by July 5. 

UPDATE: The first committee meeting will be held Wednesday, July 4 at 7 pm at the Kindersley Elks Hall.

Any other residents interested in joining the committee should contact the Town Office immediately at 306-463-2675 or email office@kindersley.ca.

The committee will report back on its findings at the July 16 Regular Meeting of Council.
