CBC - New addictions recovery centre for women will channel Anne Oake's legacy of caring for others, says Scott Oake
Anne died in 2021 shortly after opening of Bruce Oake Recovery Centre, which she co-founded in memory of son.
She may be gone, but Anne Oake's passion for helping those struggling with addictions will live on in a planned recovery centre for women and families.
Two years after her death, her husband, Scott Oake, and staff at the Bruce Oake Recovery Centre announced plans this week for the Anne Oake Recovery Centre.
"The Oakes have done so much for the community," said Greg Kyllo, executive director of the Bruce Oake Recovery Centre, which opened in Winnipeg's Crestview neighbourhood in 2021, just weeks before Anne died.
