A step in the right direction.
This was how founder of Is There Not A Cause (ITNAC), Avonelle Hector-Joseph, yesterday described the budget proposal to establish centres for homeless women.
During his 2019-2020 budget presentation yesterday, Finance Minister Colm Imbert announced that children under three years old will attend day-care centres for free.
This applies to single parent female-headed households who meet the necessary criteria.
The Government also proposes to build more centres for homeless women. Imbert said the Government will partner with the HDC to provide these centres.
