Four men on the island of Grand Bahama were on the verge of homelessness after the building where they lived was demolished. However the Ministry for Grand Bahama’s Collab Program stepped in to provide them with housing.

One of the men assisted, Mallfredo Duncombe expressed his appreciation stating, “it rained this morning and I didn’t have to put no bucket out. I appreciate that from the bottom of my heart. Continue to do the good work for people like me.”

Minister for Grand Bahama, the Hon. Ginger Moxey explained that the Collab Program was launched to identify issues and find solutions in partnership with the private sector and Non government organizations. “This journey started when we first came to office. These buildings that were right opposite the Ministry for Grand Bahama we knew that we were in the process of having them demolished in collaboration with the Port Authority and we identified that there were many families that lived in those buildings. I already knew that I was going to be working on these homes in Tripp Circle under the Collab Unit in the Ministry for Grand Bahama and so I identified the homes as transition homes that those families can move into.”
