Women’s shelters in Kapuskasing, Hearst, and Cochrane are raising awareness about domestic violence for the month of November. Habitat Interlude’s Outreach Councillor, Dawn Nuccio, says they are doing that in a few different ways, including challenging men and woman to paint their nails purple.

Nuccio says Habitat Interlude is a resource for women affected by abuse or harassment in anyway, including physical and sexual. There are services for women to help escape abusive relationships, like counselling and legal aid.
