Eagle’s Nest announces reopening – Cochrane Eagle

Apr 20, 2017

After closing the doors at the Eagle’s Nest Stoney family centre two years ago for renovations, officials announced earlier this week the centre will be reopening in May.

“The closure gave Eagle’s Nest Stoney Family Shelter the opportunity to review its guiding approach and operations to ensure it reflects best practice services across the province. The review will culminate in better services for Stoney Nation women, and others who use the shelter, services that are grounded in respect, dignity, and cultural safety,” said Kathryn Williams, acting director of the centre.

The shelter, for women and children fleeing violence, has been closed since April 2015 after an engineering firm assessed the facility and found a number of issues. All the recommended work was done over the two-year period, including installation of a code compliant sprinkler system, assessment of municipal water service connection, a new fire suppression system and installation of fire rated doors and walls.
