PEI Family Violence Prevention Services Inc (PEI FVPS) recently announced that Nick Frid has been hired for a two-year pilot offering services to male and male-identifying clients. The position will respond to referrals supporting men who have been abused as well as men who have caused harm. The organization has seen an increase in these referrals in recent years and feels it is important to respond with quality services.

These new additional supports will benefit Island communities and families dealing with violence. An evaluation of the program will be available after the pilot closes.

PEI FVPS supports over 400 families across the province annually by providing services such as: emergency shelter (Anderson House), a 24/7 crisis and support line, outreach services, group programming, transitional and permanent housing, public education and training, and youth programming.
