Award for the Portage Family Abuse Prevention Centre

Domestic Violence shelters are the unsung heroes in our society today.  It's unfortunate but true.  The unfortunate part is that shelters are needed, the fortunate part is that they exist to do their much needed work.  On that note I'd like to sing a little about the Portage Family Abuse Prevention Centre.  This shelter has recently received the honour of receiving the "Outstanding Not-for-Profit Business Award, presented by the Portage la Prairie Chamber of Commerce.  Congratulations to everyone involved with the Portage Family Abuse Prevention Centre!
L to R: Matthew Henderson, President of Chamber of Commerce; Robin B. PFPAC Staff; Joyce Schrader-Executive Director PFAPC and MLA Ian Wishart
Thank you for all your hard work!
