Bereaved Families of Cape Breton Facing Funding Crunch
Bereaved Families of Cape Breton says it’s facing closure by the end of November if funding is not secured in the next six weeks.
The non-profit organization says it used to get its largest share of funding from the United Way of Cape Breton.
However, it says changes to the United Way’s funding model means most of its programs don’t quality.
Bereaved Families say it’s holding a “Royal Tea” on Saturday at St. Theresa’s Hall in Sydney as a way to raise short-term funds.
However, it’s also asking anyone who’s benefited from its programs to call their MLA’s and MP’s to bring attention to the group’s plight.
