The Ministry for Grand Bahama’s Collab Partnership has been making great strides in providing assistance to the people of Grand Bahama since its start. Its latest effort is the provision of transitional housing for four men in Tripp Circle.

ZNS News spoke with the Director of Collab, Jewel Edwards who spoke on the program’s purpose. “This is about us giving them a hand up. Minister Moxey is not about giving them a hand out but is providing opportunities for them to make a better go of their lives and all of us have needed that opportunity.”

Collab also offers counselling at its resource center. Wellness Officer, Canon Curtis Robinson says the center’s doors are open to all. “Many people are still going through the traumatic experience of Dorian and even the pandemic. And so we need to take care of the whole person. So its not just clothing them and sheltering but its also making sure their mental health is in order.”

The Tripp Circle Resource Center is open from 9am to 5pm.
