Website launches for Transformational Living Centre
A website has been launched to provide information about a soon-to-open home for mothers and their children.
The Transformational Living Centre for Families is expected to welcome its first residents by Christmas.
A spokeswoman said that its website, developed by The Whitfield Group, was “fresh and loaded with information about the TLC”.
She added: “It is worth the visit at www.tlc.bm.”
Tina Laws, the executive director of the Women’s Resource Centre, said: “We are all extremely excited to see this project come to fruition.
“The project started in 2017 as a discussion between Sheelagh Cooper of Habitat for Humanity and Elaine Butterfield, the then executive director of the Women’s Resource Centre, as a result of the growing requests for accommodation from women and their families who are housing insecure.
“The discussion grew to a think-tank discussion involving 18 other stakeholders which revealed just how desperate the issue really is.
“Habitat for Humanity along with their partners are responsible for the complete renovations of the new state-of-the art facility, while the Women’s Resource Centre is responsible for the development of the transformational component of the programme.”
Ms Laws said that the programme lasted two years and started with a “robust” pilot scheme.
She added: “The incredible property has been leased from the Pembroke Parish Council for an initial period of 15 years with the option to renew, rent free while being renovated.”
Five families are expected to become guests of the TLC by Christmas.
After that, up to ten families can be housed at the centre.
