Ottawa, Ontario – Today in the House of Commons, Sturgeon River – Parkland MP, Dane Lloyd spoke in support of the Jessica Martel Memorial Foundation’s efforts to construct “Jessie’s House” a home for domestic abuse survivors. 

“This past September the foundation broke ground on “Jessie’s House” a home that will support survivors in my riding and surrounding areas” said Dane Lloyd.

Mrs. Lynne Rosychuk, the mother of Jessica Martel, together with friends and family established the Jessica Martel Memorial Foundation in 2012.  In November, Alberta recognizes Family Violence Awareness Month.  Organizations like the JMMF are providing essential resources to domestic abuse survivors in our communities.
