The charity has been forced to shut its shelter for women and children fleeing domestic violence — the only such facility on the Island. Executive director Laurie Shiell and board chairwoman Lorna Dixon-Marable told The Royal Gazette last week that the Centre itself may also have to close unless they raised desperately needed funds.
