DomesticShelters.org spotlight on Luke’s Place: The only center of its kind in Canada and the U.S.

DomesticShelters.org is the largest searchable directory of domestic violence services in Canada and the US. This site is full of helpful tools and information for people who are subjected to or are working to end intimate partner abuse.

On December 6, 2017, Luke’s Place was spotlighted for our unique focus on family law issues. Executive Director Carol Barkwell describes how Luke’s Place has grown local services into province-wide programs:

“We kind of struck out on our own and grew from the need,” Barkwell says. “We really endeavored not to duplicate services [of other organizations]. We were mindful to be filling a gap and as we grew and developed, we just continued to address the needs we saw in our community. Now we’re sharing what we’ve developed with other communities through our service model toolkit.”
